Florida Continues its Anti-democracy Antics

Check this out. The dufus state is at it again. Apparently there is a new law on the books in this location in Florida, the sunshine state, that allows police to beat you up if you try to photograph or interview people at the polling place.

Oh, and apparently nobody but the police knows about this law. They do, however, neglect to remember another, more enduring law, that says that the police cannot monitor polling places, unless a) they are voting or b) they are called in to stop violence or law-breaking.

Methinks "somebody" called the police and when they saw a pencil-necked photographer doing his job, they quite literally pounced. Isn't this a wonderful state?
