In Mount Penn, Pennsyvlania, a women complained to her state Sen. Michael A. O’Pake after observing what she believed to be a “McCain Palin” bumper sticker affixed to the back of a dump truck belonging to the borough. Incensed, the woman snapped a quick photo of the offensive sign and forwarded it to the Senator’s office. Upon receipt of the photo, Sen. O’Pake’s office contacted Mount Penn Mayor Joshua Nowotarski to ensure he was aware that municipalities were prohibited from publicly endorsing candidates. Reportedly shocked by the phone call, Nowotarski immediately contacted the borough road crew and went out to inspect the truck himself. After close inspection, it was determined that the complainant had apparently misread the truck’s manufacturer label, “McClain Galion.”
