Georgia Republican governor campaign button prompts ejection from bar

There used to be a time in history when one can choose a candidate they want to represent them and wear that candidates’ political campaign attire, but in today’s world, if one is a Republican, one will be harassed.

On Wednesday, Jason Shepherd, Chairman of the Cobb County, Georgia, Republican Party, said one of his Republican friends was kicked out of Live at the Battery Atlanta over a button supporting Brian Kemp, the GOP candidate for Governor of Georgia.

Shepherd decided to boycott Live at the Battery after a companion he was with was kicked out of the bar, he believes, for no other reason than wearing a Kemp button.

According to Shepherd, after hosting former White House press secretary Sean Spicer at the Cobb Galleria during a GOP event on Tuesday, he, Spicer and other Republicans went to SunTrust Park to watch the Braves play against the St. Louis Cardinals. After Spicer left, Shepherd and other Republicans went to Live at the Battery for some post-game nachos. When they learned the kitchen was closed, one Republican, who asked that his name not be used in any media reports, offered to spring for a pitcher and went up to the bar with another member to order.

Shepherd, former Cobb GOP Chairman Scott Johnson and others waited at their table.

“When all of a sudden I hear the commotion, and there are three guys, one on each side of his arm, and one at his back, and they’re pushing him down the bar, towards the door and saying, ‘Sir, it’s time for you to go. It’s time for you to go’ and he’s going ‘what have I done? What have I done?’”

Most reasonable people would think that a button supporting a candidate for public office would not be cause for ejection from a public establishment, but Shepherd maintains he knows of no other reason for his friend to be escorted out.

That, however, wasn’t the end of the political tension.
