As reported by this website earlier, Vince McMahon is filing suite against Connecticut's Secretary of State for ruling "that any Connecticut voters who showed up to vote for Linda McMahon's Senate campaign wearing WWE merchandise would be turned away."
First of all, I'd like to say, that I do not live in Connecticut, know enough about Linda McMahon's political views to have a legitimate opinion on her candidacy, or have any WWE Merchandise.
What I really want to say, is that I think it's pretty ridiculous and I'm wondering if it's actually legal to turn away voters due to their clothing. Obviously, certain restrictions would apply to the clothing you could wear out in public, but somehow I don't think that WWE merchandise falls into that category.
I suppose the basis for this is probably something about how wearing WWE merchandise is too suggestive to other voters on who to vote for, which is crap. Now, I'm not saying that it's right for people to blindly vote for McMahon purely because they like the WWE, but it is none of the government's business why we vote for the people we do. After all, I'm sure all of us feel the other 50% of the population voted for stupid reasons. Also, although there is definitely a link in between WWE and McMahon's campaign, unless you can legally prove it, I don't think you can legally do anything about it.
*Edit - Also, I'm pretty sure this is just a wording error on the part of the reporter, as the way it is worded is suggesting that pollers will be viewing every voter wearing WWE merchandise's vote to see if it is eligible, as the dual criteria is both wearing WWE merchandise and voting for McMahon. This is pretty discriminatory against people who happen to be fans of the WWE and are planning on voting for McMahon's opposition. Is it really so hard to believe that there exists Democratic fans of the WWE in a blue state?
