Doesn’t this guy realize we no longer have a First Amendment?
An Atlanta man said a parking officer cited him after noticing a Romney campaign bumper sticker on the rear of his vehicle.Ryan Wolfe said an employee of ParkAtlanta, a third-party with whom the city of Atlanta contracts to enforce parking regulations, seemed so “insulted” by his political decal that she gave him both a ticket and tongue lashing.
“I overheard her say that, when she saw the sticker on the back of my car … ‘Oh, I’m definitely going to give you a ticket now,’” Wolfe told the local Fox News affiliate, which he later said was alerted to the story by a ParkAtlanta whistleblower.
Wolfe never contested the since-paid ticket, explaining he unwittingly parked briefly on a digitally metered road to make a quick purchase at a nearby store.
But the Georgia Republican Party was outraged over the incident.
“I’ve never heard of this, the bumper sticker war,” Georgia GOP chairwoman Sue Everhart said. “I am just amazed that this happened in this city, and I know this is not what Mayor Reed would like to see his employees do. It reflects on the whole city.”
