Alabama woman says she lost job for sporting Kerry sticker on car
Decatur Daily ^ | 9/12/2004 | Clyde L. Stancil

Posted on 09/12/2004 4:54:10 PM PDT by GeorgiaFreeper

MOULTON — Lynne Gobbell never imagined the cost of a John Kerry-John Edwards bumper sticker could run so high.

DAILY Photo by Clyde Stancil Lynne Gobbell said her boss fired her last week because of the Kerry-Edwards campaign sticker on the back of her car. Gobbell of Moulton didn't pay a cent for the sticker that she proudly displays on the rear windshield of her Chevrolet Lumina, but said it cost her job at a local factory after it angered her boss, Phil Gaddis.

Gaddis, a Decatur bankruptcy attorney, owns Enviromate, a cellulose insulation company in Moulton.

Gaddis did not return phone calls from THE DAILY about the alleged Thursday firing.

Gobbell said she consulted a lawyer, but then changed her mind about going to see him. She said she has cried about the incident and must do without income for three weeks while the state unemployment commission decides if she is eligible for compensation.

More than likely, she got fired for not performing her job adequately. This is just a typical flimsy leftist excuse.

I believe anyone who has a Kerry sticker can be legally let go for "integrity" issues.

"I would like to find another job, but I would take that job back because I need to work," she said. "It upset me and made me mad that he could put a letter in my check expressing his (political) opinion, but I can't put something on my car expressing mine."

She was referring to a flier that she said Gaddis placed in employee envelopes to remind them of the positive impact that President Bush's policies have had on them. An employee at the plant who would not identify himself confirmed the contents of the letter.

Gobbell provided a copy of the flier. It says:

"Just so you will know, because of the Bush tax (cut):

I was able to buy the new Hammer Mill
I was able to finance our receivables
I was able to get the new CAT skid steer
I was able to get the wire cutter
I was able to give you a job"
It further says:

"You got the benefit of the Bush tax cut. Everyone did."

The DUr's are emailing the company to complain. Maybe we freepers should contact the company and offer our support / business.

And how is this different from the story oif a woman fired from a Moslem owned company in Florida becasue she ate a BLT sandwich at work? I'm definitely NOT a Kerry supporter, but firing someone over a political sticker, democrat or republican, is a bit over the top.

Bullcrap. Sounds like a charge made when she got fired for something else.

That is what I thought, Liberals do some really underhanded things, I would not put it past her.

Maybe John Edwards will help her out -- he should be available 11/4. :-)

I'll pass. I think she was looking for a fight and while its his business and he makes the rules, I won't do business with folks who try to abridge political speech.

Like John McCain for instance.
