Teen ticketed for DWR (Driving While Republican)

Being a supporter of any presidential candidate is typically priceless. But for Cody Hauer, being a Ron Paul supporter may wind up costing more than $550 following four citations in one week from the Owatonna Police Department for having a $40 window decal on the rear window of his Buick Park Avenue. "I support Ron Paul, the city police department doesn't," he said. "They gave me a DWR - driving while Republican."

According to Minnesota law, it is illegal for people to operate a motor vehicle on any street or highway if any side window or rear window is composed of or treated with material obstructing the driver's view.

Hauer had a 13-inch-by-40-inch decal affirming his support for the "Ron Paul Revolution." The decal took up most of the window with red and white lettering, while mini decals advertising Paul's presidential Web site adorn the bottom of his passenger windows. » Article here

You gotta wonder about a guy who doesn't get it after the first ticket.
