Libertarian candidate objects to political symbols自由派候選人反對政治象徵物

A Libertarian candidate for Licking County commissioner has challenged the county Board of Elections over some donkey and elephant figurines - symbols of the major political parties.
James Snedden Jr., 63, of St. Louisville, won his quest to have them removed.
Snedden filed a complaint with the board on Aug. 4 saying that when he turned in paperwork to run for office, he noticed donkey and elephant symbols representing the Democratic and Republican parties were on display. He said symbols of other political parties were not displayed, which he thought gave an unfair advantage to major-party candidates.
The Ohio secretary of state’s office called several days later, Sue Penick, director of the elections board’s office, said, and suggested that the statuettes be removed from public view to avoid any hassle. As a result, the figurines are no longer on the public counter but are still in the office.
