Nurse sues over bumper sticker BS

Nurse sues over ticket for anti-Bush bumper sticker

ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) – A woman who was ticketed for having an obscene anti-Bush bumper sticker filed a lawsuit in federal court Monday against a county in the state of Georgia and its officials.

Denise Grier, 47, of Athens, Georgia, got a $100 ticket in March after a DeKalb County police officer spotted the bumper sticker, which read “I’m Tired Of All The BUSHSHIT.”

A DeKalb judge threw out the ticket in April because the state’s lewd decal law that formed the basis for the ticket was ruled unconstitutional in 1990.

Grier is seeking damages from the county for “emotional distress,” according to the lawsuit.</i>

Glad to see not everyone in my fair state is taking tyranny laying down. Kudos!
