World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Vince McMahon has filed a federal lawsuit seeking to stop Connecticut election workers from asking WWE fans to cover up their wrestling garb at the polls.
The husband of Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon filed the suit in federal court Tuesday. He says Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz is violating free speech rights by telling local registrars they can ask people to cover up or return wearing something else.
State election law prevents political advertising within 75 feet of the polls.
But McMahon calls Bysiewicz's order a "flagrant act of censorship and discrimination."
Bysiewicz hasn't responded to a call seeking comment.
State attorney general and Democratic Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal has recused himself from the lawsuit.
