Forced to leave the polling place because of Obama T-shirt

Yes, I was asked to leave the polling area because of my t-shirt. It had a portrait of Obama, but no words!!! That ain't right, but I didn't want to go to jail before I had a cup of free coffee from Starbucks. I reluctantly agreed to leave instead of having to turn my shirt inside-out. What if the only clothes I had were Obama clothes, provided by the government, with prints inside and outside? Would I have to Vote Naked??? Plus, why is a photo, without text, considered propaganda. I took an "I Voted" sticker and drove to Starbucks and got a cup of Joe. After that I went back to the polls and wore a Dickies jacket over my Obama shirt in order to be able to cast my vote.
