McMahon claims victory over shirt ban

Oct 27, 2010 - by Steve Gerweck

WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon expressed his satisfaction after
Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz changed her view on banning WWE
merchandise at the polls come Tuesday, the day of the election. “The moment
Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz issued an un-American,
unconstitutional and discriminatory directive prohibiting voters from
wearing WWE merchandise at the polls, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal
should have immediately stepped in to enforce the law,” a press release
issued by WWE said. “As a result of the Attorney General’s inaction, I
brought suit to enforce these basic, fundamental constitutional rights.
Within hours of filing the lawsuit, Blumenthal recused himself, and
Bysiewicz reversed her position and immediately notified all Local Registrar
of Voters and Town Clerks via email. I am pleased that Connecticut voters
have had their freedom of expression and their right to vote restored,”
Vince McMahon said. It will be interesting to see if Vince McMahon goes to
vote wearing any WWE merchandise himself!
