Fears of exploding Faux Romneys?
Tampa authorities have imposed strict rules for political effigies, limiting the size, shape and actual material, as the Toronto Star saw firsthand when it spent a few minutes alongside a group of protesters sporting this nifty faux-Mitt.
Three times in three blocks, we watched as the Florida Consumer Action Network marchers were stopped by separate security teams, each wanting to know what construction materials went into the making of their cartoon Romney.
What gives? Explosives hidden behind Mitt's money-tie? A Black Bloc cache between the ears?
The third interception was too much for protest leader Kelly Benjamin, 35, who shouted back, "It's 100 per cent paper mache, as was demanded of us! We are 100 per cent compliant with the rules. How many times are you going to ask?"
