Brickbat: Bible Thumpers


Election officials in Williamson County, Texas, forced Kay Hill to cover up her T-shirt before allowing her to vote. The T-shirt read "Vote the Bible." They said the message violated state law banning electioneering inside or within 100 feet of a polling place. "Electioneering would cover wearing a hat, a pen, a T-shirt, or a sign that would indicate a position for a political party, candidate or a proposition," said Williamson County public affiars director Connie Watson.
