Could it be a crime to give your fellow Americans a chance to enjoy a theatrical screening of that modern American myth, It’s a Wonderful Life?

The Nebraska Republican Party thinks it is. Or at least it thinks it of political benefit to say it is, in their quest to unseat one of America’s few sitting Libertarian state legislators, state Sen. Laura Ebke.
Ebke switched her party allegiance from GOP to L.P. in 2016, and she’s up for reelection as a Libertarian in 2018. The Republicans are running Al Riskowski, a man who formerly ran the Nebraska Family Alliance. That’s a conservative activist group obsessed with the legalities of gambling, gender identity, suicide, and “human trafficking.”
Ebke sponsored two screenings of the movie to celebrate the revival of a local theater in her hometown that had gone under when the switch to digital projection swept the industry.post was originally published on this site
