Last time I checked, "political affiliation" wasn't one of the prohibited classes for discrimination.....
Let's see, from the EEOC website, "political affiliation" is listed exactly twice, indicating that the EEOC doesn't enforce that, but certain federal employees are so protected. It also indicates that some states may have political affiliation guidelines, but it doesn't list them out.
So, getting fired for an Obama sticker isn't an EEOC violation, but may be one at the state level.
