She was made to put on a jacket before she could vote. Officials in Williamson County defended the decision, saying the poll worker was following federal law that does not allow "electioneering" in or near a polling place where someone is making a suggestion about how someone else should vote.

Campus Group May be 'Dde-recognized’

The student government at Boston's Tufts University is starting the process of removing a Christian group from official recognition. The InterVarsity Christian Fellowship chapter called Tufts Christian Fellowship requires group leaders to be Christians themselves - and that's not acceptable to Tuft's SGA, which holds the reigns to money and campus access. The SGA says the requirement is a violation of the school's discrimination rules. Tufts Christian Fellowship points out the school's all-male a cappella group is allowed to be gender exclusive. The group plans an appeal to a Student Life committee made up of faculty members.
