The Connecticut Post has an article up, where Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz responded to the discrimination lawsuit that Vince McMahon filed yesterday. The lawsuit was in response to her not wanting to allow voters in her state to wear WWE clothing to the polls on Tuesday. You can read the full article at ctpost.com Bysiewicz sent the following letter to registrars and town clerks yesterday.
"Be advised that it is the position of this office that simply wearing WWE apparel at the polls, including apparel with the trade name or logo of the WWE or the name or photograph of any WWE entertainment that does not display the name or photograph of Linda McMahon, U.S. Senate candidate, or the name or logo of Ms. McMahon's campaign does not trigger a violation. Further, even when an individual is found to be wearing campaign material in violation of the 75 foot restrictions, they should never be told to leave the polls. They should be simply asked to remove or cover the item or apparel in question. Once this is accomplished, the individual should be allowed to vote."
Fox News also has coverage of the matter, which you can read at foxnews.com/politics
Vince McMahon sent out the following quote yesterday: "I am pleased that Connecticut voters have had their freedom of expression to wear WWE merchandise and their right to vote restored."
