This photo-journalist asked for permission to video this PUBLIC event for Governor Nathan Deal in Georgia.
Permission was granted by the wife of the farmer at this Pumpkin Farm. Fast forward to 13:55 to see how that turned out. BTW Governor Deal was in attendance
One last comment, a male reporter with a voice recorder and camera was not approached or questioned. Also I have filmed and photographed many a PUBLIC political events without any problems, nor would I expect any.
