Deputies Escort Leslie Kauffman Off Grounds
WALTON – A former rabbit barn superintendent of the Delaware County Fair was escorted off premises by deputies and barred from ever returning for taking photographs of merchandise bearing the Confederate flag, according to a press release issued today by Fair for All, the group protesting Stars & Bars at the week-long event.
Leslie Kauffman, a co-founder of the group Fair for All, which has been campaigning to end the sale of the flag at the fair, attended the fair on Tuesday with her two children and, while there, took photographs of Confederate flag merchandise available for sale.
