What would Vince McMahon say?

Vince McMahon sure knows how to emphasize his point.
On Thursday, he said his World Wrestling Entertainment would hand out clothing and merchandise to celebrate a federal judge’s ruling that voters wearing WWE gear can’t be turned away from the polls.
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon is former CEO of the WWE and Vince’s wife.
(Last week, Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz was reported to suggest that WWE clothing would be considered campaign material, though she later said that people would be told to cover up only if they had the name or photo of a candidate on their clothing.)
Today, Vince sent some samples to reporters who have covered the campaign between Linda McMahon and Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal: a T-shirt, two caps, a headband and wristbands.
The letter in the box said: "Enclosed please find the exact assorted merchandise sent to Susan Bysiewicz’s office should she decide to wear WWE merchandise to the polls on Tuesday.
"Sincerely, Vince McMahon"
Just in time for Halloween.
