The Texas Secretary of State has ruled that the Gadsden flag can be worn inside voting locations —
The Texas Election Code prohibits electioneering for or against any candidate, measure or political party (Sections 61.003, 61.010 and 85.036). It is the opinion of this office that people simply wearing a t-shirt or button with the wording “Don’t Tread on Me” displaying the coiled rattlesnake and nothing else are not electioneering for (nor does such action relate to) a candidate, measure or party and such action does not relate to the conduct of the election.
“Honey, the Gadsden flag is all over Texas Attorney General Gregg Abbott’s political signs,” she reminds folks. “I mean, it’s bad enough that we have a State Attorney General who thinks we can and should secede. But, for the Secretary of State to say it’s okay to wear his symbol into the voting booth is a tad overloaded with pure industrial grade extra-virgin crapola!”
“Can I wear a dead coyote and the rental agreement to my $10,000 a month Governor’s mansion into the poll? I suspect not. No, really, I don’t think they’d let me do that. I mean, you’d think that would even the score, but not in Texas.”
“It’s good to own the state,” she shakes her head and rolls her eyes.
