Freedom of Speech All Year Round?

Apparently not, if an individual who supports a presidential candidate can't put signs on his own property and his own lawn more than 30-days out from an election, only within the 30-day period.

How silly. Maybe Hillary Clinton will pick up on the Obama sign in Rudolph's lawn and come up with some clever and catch line during the Feb. 28th MSNBC debate.

Something we can all get another good laugh, because we're crying over this insanity.

ACLU Files Suit Over Obama Campaign Signs

February 20th, 2008 by Greg Palmer
For now, Joseph Rudolph can display a sign supporting Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential run on his front lawn in South Park. Whether it will be allowed to stay there will be decided in U.S. District Court...

...That would mean Dr. Rudolph couldn’t put up his sign until March 23, in advance of Pennsylvania’s April 22 primaries.

“Freedom of speech applies all year round,” said Witold “Vic” Walczak, legal director of the ACLU of Pennsylvania, “not just 30 days before an election.”
