Texas sued after election worker threatens to call cops over MAGA hat

A number of Texas election officials are being sued after an elections worker threatened a voter with arrest for wearing a pro-Trump Make America Great Again hat.

The case was brought by the Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of Jillian Ostrewich and Anthony Ortiz, who each claim their free speech was suppressed by elections officials.

Named in the suit are Dallas County’s Toni Pippins-Poole and Harris County Clerk Diane Trautman.

Ostrewich was told she was not allowed to wear a shirt stating “Houston Fire Fighters” while she voted, and Ortiz was threatened with arrest for wearing his hat
