Will you be wearing your NRA hat tomorrow?
The NRA has sent a letter to Douglas County, Georgia, Board of Elections supervisor Laurie Fulton, demanding the board lift their ban on clothing with the NRA name on it.
Breitbart News reported that election officials in that county told two men wearing NRA hats that they had to remove them in order to vote. The first man was asked to remove his hat because another voter was “offended” by it. Board of Elections supervisor Fulton said the second man was asked to do so because of legal precedent.
She said, “Courts have found that anything that suggests [or is] associated with the NRA, in many people’s perceptions, is associated with the Republican Party.” Fulton said the county does not want to appear to be showing “favoritism” to one party, so people wearing NRA hats are asked to remove them before being allowed to vote.
