    Woman Ticketed For Political Bumper Stickers

    Woman Ticketed For Political Bumper Stickers
    Mall Worker Heads To Court In November

    OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- A Kansas woman said she was ticketed for having political bumper stickers on her car.

    On Wednesday, Sara Keiser was cited in connection with campaigning illegally because she parked her car at Metcalf South Mall, which is a polling place during elections.

    The law states that no one can campaign within 250 feet of a polling place.

    Keiser said she wasn't at the mall to vote or to campaign. She was there to go to work.

    "I work here. My office is upstairs. I'm here every single day," Keiser said.

    She said someone going to the mall to vote noticed her car parked out front and called police.

    "They contacted all kinds of people in Kansas government about what to do. Apparently at one point, they were thinking about towing my car," Keiser said.

    The car wasn't towed, but an officer wrote her a ticket.

    "The officer seemed as confused as I did and a little uncomfortable," she said. "(The ticket) stated that my car is a campaign vehicle, which obviously took me aback."

    She said she prefers to park close to the front doors of the mall, but now she must park around the corner and out of sight of the polling place.

    Keiser didn't receive a monetary fine, but she must report to court in November.

    So U agree or disagree w/ the ticket?

    Personally, I think the whole issue is ridiculous. Whether U agree or disagree w/ her politically - IF what she is saying is true, then I do not believe she deserves the ticket. I realize the majority of people on this site are Republicans - but looking beyond her obvious stance as a democrat, I don't think she deserved the ticket.

    Typical liberal response to everything. They see something they don't like and they call government to fix it their way, or it's wrong. Well lets pass a law that's all you ever hear out of the jerks. You do know there is liberal republicans too don't you Ship?

    I think there is too much labeling of "liberal" and "conservative." People can have a mix of views - liberal on some and conservative on others. I know I do. Also, to automatically villainize all democrats is not fair either. There are many moderate or even conservative democrats. Every democrat is not a liberal nutjob.

    In reality, I think both parties are screwed up, and it quite often comes down to the lesser of two evils.

    And, besides progun issues, sometimes U gotta look at other issues as well. Then decide who to vote for....

    Well if your for taking away guns, killing babies, homo's marrying,and many government give away programs. Then your a good Democrate. If you want the likes of john kerry, ted kenndy, and nacy polopski running your country. Yep your a Democrate. I ask you, would you really want to be a liberal? These are the liberal ideals and some of the most powerful one's in government. Oh I forgot george soros. That commy owns the dnc. He's a world socialist. There's much more but I am tired of this.

    I she parked within the legal boundary of a polling place (I thinks it's 100 feet) I agree with the ticket.

    SW..It would be nice to see some links to the stories you post for reference.

    Not every democrat is for those things. You are taking the extreme left. Unfortunately, they have taken over the party. There are also fanatics on the right side - Some of the Christian conservatives. Unfortunately, they get the main voice of the republican party sometimes.

    I do not like the socialists. But while both parties suck, the rebuplican party is generally horrible on environmental issues. Each party has good and bad things. I will admit that lately, the democrats have been taken over by a bunch of nuts. But I know some "regular" democrats who are not liberal loons. I think its too easy to jump on the bandwagon when you are in either party, and just insult the other guy.

    To be honest, both parties suck. They usually are two sides of the same coin.

    So you think that liberals should be killed just because they have a different political viewpoint? Now that is really scary.


    --

    As for the ticket, it would have been much simpler to have just asked her to move her car out of sight of the polling place. It doesn't appear that she was actively trying to violate the law here, and I doubt that she gave it much thought at all.

    Now the whole thing has been made a news item. Personally, if I had seen the sticker I would have ignored it. By that reasoning, anybody parking at the polls to vote that has a sticker on their car would have to be ticketed.

    I agree with you 100% on both partys suck. We are in bad need of a change. I was born and rasied in a Democrate home after the war. Your right about it has changed big time. What is going on in Washington is a disgrace to our country as a whole. You have to sets of elites fighting for power. They could care less about what is happening to the country. All they want is the power. Where's the likes of Zell Miller when you need them. I don't see any democrates that are coming up that has the grit to take that party and fix whats wrong.

    Zig-Zag Zell as we called him, because he would move from one side or the other of an issue, and before he started speaking out about the wrongs of his party has retired in North Georgia.

    I agree that both parties suck so I label myself an independent and vote for whichever side I think is the lesser of two weasels, usually republican in national and democrat state and local. I disagree with the ticket since that could have happened to anyone, not many people if any would remember their bumper stickers. We really need more political parties in America, two parties can't really represent the views of an entire nation. Moderate dems. and reps. are very different from their extremist bedfellows.

    The last I'll say is she sure didn't deserve a ticket. If I had been the LEO and knew where she was I would of had her move it. If she refused then I would done as ordered. Of corse he might not of had that option.

    In all fairness - I pointed out in another thread this week that meaning quite often get lost in e-mails and messages. There is no inflection in messages. Different people take the same post different ways because there is only text - no meaning behind it. I learned that a long time ago, and I try to be noncombative as possible because of this...

    Nuke who? Liberals? We're not talking about anything else here on this thread but US citizens w/ differing political views....

    Its terrible when people can't accept someone with a differing view. U can disagree with someone vehemently - but to hate this is another level...

    I don't mean to ruffle feathers - obviously some people agree and some disagree. And intolerance floats thru all views I suppose. But, I'd like to think we can discuss opposing views civilly. So, far, members have been nice to each other even when they have opposing views. But, even if not directed at a member per se, hateful things don't reflect well on the speaker, and invite controversy

    Actually, I have too much of a sense of humor that often gets me into trouble, but I just didn't find wishing a horrible form of death on people with differing viewpoints to be funny.
