Nevada bans chicken suits from polling places

Nevada has banned people in chicken suits from polling places. The Republican candidate, Sue Lowden, suggested that people who are too poor for medical care could offer chickens to their doctors in lieu of payment.

State election officials on Friday added chicken suits to the list of banned items after weeks of ridicule directed at Republican Senate candidate Sue Lowden.

The millionaire casino executive and former beauty queen recently suggested that people barter with doctors for medical care, like when "our grandparents would bring a chicken to the doctor."

Democrats responded by setting up a website, "Chickens for Checkups," and by sending volunteers in chicken suits to her campaign events.
