West Long Beach, NJ - New Jersey’s American Civil Liberties Union is joining the defense team for a man facing a fine for flying flags supporting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Joseph Hornick was ticketed for violating a West Long Branch ordinance that restricts the display of political signs until 30 days before an election. The town considers the “Trump-Make America Great Again” flags equivalent to a political sign.

Chapter deputy legal director Jeanne LoCicero says it doesn’t matter whether it’s a lawn sign or a flag. She says people have the right to express their political beliefs every day. The chapter plans to defend Hornick in court along with Eric Sherman with the New York-based firm Pryor Cashman.

New Jersey’s primary is June 7.

Violators of the ordinance face a minimum fine of $100.
