Disabled women not allowed to vote for wearing an Obama shirt

A disabled women in New Mexico was not allowed to early vote simply because she was wearing an “Obama for President” t-shirt. Turns out that it is against the law to campaign within 100 feet of a voting station, and that includes t-shirts and buttons. Funny enough, it isn’t illegal to show up to vote early while intoxicated.

Got to have your standards.

Just for the record, the women was able to vote later after she went out to her van, and changed her shirt.
