MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A state worker suspended for three days after wearing a "Hillary for Prison" T-shirt to work has lost his second appeal.
Frank A. Wessely of Kewaunee was suspended after wearing the T-shirt under a sport coat. Wessely, a Department of Transportation analyst, appealed the suspension twice, arguing the T-shirt was not "at all" offensive and he had received only positive comments while wearing the shirt around the state.
It's unclear when he wore the shirt to work.
The Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission denied his second appeal in February, noting he was told multiple times not to wear inappropriate clothing to work and had acknowledged his shirt "might be offensive." The state earlier noted employees had been instructed not to reveal political affiliations at work.
Wessely didn't immediately return a message.
