GA Voter Denied Right to Vote Based on NRA Instructor Hat: SLF Files Suit
ATLANTA, GA/Dec. 8, 2014: Southeastern Legal Foundation (SLF) today filed a federal civil rights lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, challenging the unconstitutional actions of Douglas County, GA elections officials who denied Douglasville resident Bundy Cobb the right to vote unless he removed his National Rifle Association (NRA) Instructor hat. Cobb, who was voting early in the general election, was told his hat was forbidden as illegal "electioneering" - his choice: Remove the hat to vote, or face potential arrest, imprisonment, and a fine. Bundy is seeking declaratory and injunctive relief "to ensure that this doesn't happen again to anyone." See complete media statement and court filing below.
