GU Criminal Justice Chair: Fight to Wear Pasta Strainer in Driver’s License Photo is Important First Ammendment Issue

A Madison man’s fight to wear a pasta strainer on his head for his driver’s license photo is an important one for the First Amendment, according to Executive Criminal Justice Program Chair Wayne Strong from Globe University – Madison East.

Michael Schumacher’s desire to wear the colander on his head for the photo received criticism from the state. Schumacher got an attorney involved and the state granted his request but told him to tip the strainer back so his full face could be seen, according to a report from the Associated Press.

Schumacher’s attorney, Derek Allen, says it’s a First Amendment issue because it involves the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
