A woman voting at Tuesdays primary found an unorthodox way of protesting the town moderator, who ruled her T-shirt was a form of electioneering: She took it off and voted topless.
Town Moderator Paul Scafidi said the woman walked into the Talbot Gymnasium in the afternoon wearing a McCain Hero, Trump Zero T-shirt. As a ballot clerk was checking her name off the voter list, Scafidi said he informed the woman she could not wear a shirt with a political candidate featured on it while she voted.
Scafidi said another woman nearby was wearing a T-shirt supporting the American flag and the woman with the Trump Zero shirt questioned why she was being singled out, which escalated into a brief argument.
State law states no person, shall distribute, wear, or post at a polling place any campaign material, in part, and if convicted, is subject to a fine up to $1,000.
She asked why her and not me? Scafidi said. I said she was going to have to cover her shirt and (a shirt) supporting the American flag was not electioneering. Thats my opinion, and that was my call as the moderator.
Scafidi said at that point, the woman asked him if he wanted her to take her shirt off, despite not wearing anything underneath.
I said, Id rather she not, Scafidi said. But she took it off so fast, no one had time to react so the whole place just went, woah, and she walked away, and I let her vote. She couldve just gone into the hallway and turned it inside-out.
New Hampshires public indecency law states an individual can be found guilty of indecent exposure and lewdness if the person fornicates, exposes his or her genitals, or performs any other act of gross lewdness under circumstances which he or she should know will likely cause affront or alarm.
Scafidi said he did have the authority to have police remove the voter under the indecency law, but he did not want to see the incident escalate further. He said she put her shirt back on as soon as she stepped out of the voting booth and cast her ballot.
I could have (had her removed), but I didnt want to exacerbate the whole thing, Scafidi said. I dont know if she was trying to have me get her arrested, but I thought it was better to just let things play out. I dont think there were more than 15 voters in the building at the time and if there were any children there, I didnt see them.
Scafidi said as bizarre as the incident was in the moment, poll workers mostly laughed it off and continued about their day after she left the polling location.
If she felt it was her right, more power to her, Scafidi said. We all laughed about it as things were winding down, so I dont know if it was a set-up, but Ive never experienced anything like that. We had more important things to worry about; we had to get 2,000 people to vote safely, and check-in and count 2,000 absentee ballots.
What? No pictures? That represents the crime of INCOMPLETE JOURNALISM.....
Are ANY of these Dem voters SANE everyday it is something else with these people OMG!!
I bet you we’d need eye-bleach if pictures were posted.
Just as well. We’d probably all need eye bleach.
So she hates Trump, hates the American Flag, and loves McCain for betraying both. In other words, just a typical democrat...
“as bizarre as the incident was in the moment, poll workers mostly laughed it off “
But still... TTIUWP LOL!
Most ordinary people are simply toooo nice.
If it had been me in charge, this deranged lefty would have been evicted from the voting station and/or arrested.
BTW, for a moment I thought this might be Exeter in Devon, England!
Well, that’s ONE way to gey people to volunteer to work the pollinhg places, I suppose
Maybe judges will have to be issued sets of 8x10 cards with numbers 1-6
Wasn't New Hampshire's primary way back in February?
She hates Trump and she’s a slut/cow. OK.
That’s what I thought, but I looked it up and apparently there was some election on September 8th.
Biden material. Probably dreams of being inappropriately groped by him.
I said she was going to have to cover her shirt and (a shirt) supporting the American flag was not electioneering. Thats my opinion, and that was my call as the moderator.
American flag = vote for Trump in leftard thinking.
99% of the time, the women pushing the topless option leaves you blessed if you not see them.
Wow! A shirt promoting McCain!? Must be a collectors item
Just why is it that it is almost always the really hideous specimens that are eager to pop their tits out!?
Maybe it is a ploy to distract attention from their loathsome faces?
Demonrats love McQueeg. Zero would never have gotten elected without him serving as his main cheerleader and campaign manager in 2008.
