"According to the WWE web site, Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz gave the authority to local poll workers to determine that if anyone shows up to the Connecticut voting polls on Nov. 2 wearing any WWE merchandise -- whether it is a John Cena T-shirt or a Randy Orton wristband -- they may be forced to go home and change, cover it up or take it off in order to vote.
I understand former WWE CEO Linda McMahon is running for Senate in Connecticut, but what authority, what illegal act, what unconstitutional parameter is making the secretary of state dictate that voters can not wear certain or any WWE apparel.
McMahon does not work for the company anymore. Yes, her husband and daughter do, but they are not running for office. What does wearing a John Cena T-shirt or Randy Orton wristband or Rey Mysterio mask have to do with your right to vote.
OK, you cannot wear the mask for identification purposes. That one I understand, but the others, c'mon.
I have yet to see WWE fans wearing WWE Linda McMahon T-shirts, WWE Linda McMahon business suits or WWE Linda McMahon patent leather shoes nor seen any of those items ever produced by WWE's merchandising department." (More)
