Apparently if the GOP stands in the square and holds up McCain signs, they’ll get arrested.
Meanwhile, Hall County Republicans have applied for a permit to have a rally of their own just outside the mountains center at Roosevelt Square.
Gainesville police Chief Frank Hooper said the party applied Wednesday for a special event permit at the square. Hooper said the city considers the square an extension of the Georgia Mountains Center and requires private groups to pay a rental fee.
He said applications for special events are normally filed 10 days in advance. Hooper stressed that the city did not deny a permit; however, the party must first make arrangements for the site through the Georgia Mountains Center.
