A woman, who is thought to be in her 60s, won the hearts of the internet after she went to vote on Tuesday with an anti-Trump t-shirt. The New Hampshire voter, however, was told that she couldn’t enter the polling place while wearing her t-shirt, so instead of going home to change, she decided to take off the t-shirt and vote without her top. Yes, she wasn’t wearing a bra!
Now the woman is known on the Internet as the ‘Topless Voter’, and the New Hampshire Union Leader reports that the woman doesn’t regret her decision.
According to the town moderator Paul Scafidi, the t-shirt that read ‘McCain Hero, Trump Zero’ was in violation of electioneering rules.
State law states that voters are not allowed to ‘distribute, wear, or post’ anything that is related to the campaign at a polling place. The fine is $1000 for doing so, but because neither McCain nor Trump was on the ballot on Tuesday’s voting, the woman objected to face a fine.
Scafidi asked her to cover the shirt in order to vote, and she responded by asking him if he wanted her to take her shirt off, despite not wearing anything underneath.
He responded by saying that he rather she not, but she took it off very fast, and no one had the time to react. The whole place went ‘Woah’, and she walked away after she voted.
We all laughed about it as things were winding down, so I don’t know if it was a set-up, but I’ve never experienced anything like that.” – Scafidi added.
The woman became an Internet hit, and many people asked for more information about the unnamed hero.
