Harsh New World: Florida Town Orders Employees to Wear Underwear, Deodorant

You just know the ACLU will be springing into action over this Draconian new measure.
A Florida city is cleaning up with a new dress code that requires city workers to wear underwear and use deodorant.

The city council in Brooksville north of Tampa recently approved a dress code that instructs employees to observe "strict personal hygiene."

It also prohibits exposed underwear, clothing with foul language, "sexually provocative" clothes and piercings anywhere except the ears.

Repeat offenders can be fired.
Apparently the mayor of Brooksville is a very, um, free spirit.
The one vote in opposition came from Mayor Joe Bernadini. He said the underwear edict "takes away freedom of choice."
Note to self: If ever in Brooksville, avoid the mayor.
