THIS STORY spread pretty quickly on Election Day. The facts surrounding it are hilarious.
A woman attempting to vote in West Boca Raton this morning was initially prohibited from entering the polling place because she was wearing a t-shirt with the letters MIT.
BocaNewsNow.com has heard from multiple sources that an election supervisor at the polling place ultimately realized that MIT stands for “Massachusetts Institute of Technology” – a school where students tend to know how to spell – and was not a campaign shirt for the Republican candidate, who spells his name MITT.
Campaigning is not permitted within several yards of a polling place.
The woman was ultimately allowed to vote.
