Women will wear ‘Pantsuits to the Polls’ to support Hillary Clinton
CHICAGO — If Donald Trump’s so-called “locker room talk” made you angry, you aren’t alone.
The Republican front-runner’s 2005 comments about sexually assaulting women led to a painful debate, vanishing endorsements and sinking poll numbers. But for Chicagoan Jessie Oliver, it led to an idea she hopes will encourage women to vote proudly (and colorfully) for Hillary Clinton.
In Illinois, political T-shirts, buttons and other campaigning garb or accessories aren’t allowed within at least 100 feet of polling places (possibly further if that place is a church or school), but, as Oliver points out — pantsuits are fair game.
On Monday, Oliver began spreading the word about “Pantsuits to the Polls” on Facebook. The event encourages women to, well, wear pantsuits to the polls.
