The New Jersey mother who found herself under investigation by the U.S. military, Homeland Security, and local police for social media posts objecting to an LGBT-sexually themed poster hung at her local elementary school, has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit in the matter.
Angela Reading, the mother of two young children, names seven U.S. military officials in the suit including the commander of the McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, a joint military base located near Reading’s home.
It is the only joint base in the U.S. Department of Defense that includes units for all six branches of the U.S. armed forces.
North Hanover Township School Superintendent Helen Payne and the town’s Police Chief Robert Duff are also named in the suit, which was filed on Mar. 15 in the Camden division of New Jersey’s U.S. District Court.
