Court Rules That Obama Mural in Philly Polling Place Must Be Covered Up

At the Franklin School in Northeast Philly, voters had to stare President Barack Obama in the eye immediately before casting their votes because there is a massive mural of him inside the polling place. On Tuesday, PA GOP officials announced that a court had ruled that the mural must be covered up for the remainder of the election. Whoops.
