Blatant political bias coming to an end at one church polling site in Brevard County

If you were there at SCPA Open Mic Nite, you learned that Vicki Impoco and the women of Brevard NOW have been engaged in a long campaign to rid polling places of blatant religious political favoritism -- focused on beachside Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, which displayed political signs and messages on election day but would not allow any opposing views.

As a result of Vicki Impoco's perseverance, the church decided to step back from the bad publicity and withdraw their site as a polling place, which prompted Lori Scott, Brevard County Supervisor of Elections, to write an OpEd column.
