And it happened in Alabama, not Georgia as I previously said. Thought I'd point that out before someone corrected me.
Now, why would the factory owner file a lawsuit where there is no suggestion that the factory owner has suffered any damage.

Loss of job means loss of income. Plenty of incentive on her side - if it was true.

It only worries me sometimes that you young leftists use all your "alternative" energy for causes that don´t seem to be of uttermost importance to make this world a better place.

What is this, postmodern arbitrary anything goes?

He had his name in the press in a negative light, and I'm sure it hasn't been particularly good for business to be known as someone who would fire someone over a bumpersticker. The press hounded him for quite a while afterwards, as well. I'm sure he could prove damages. If he had another reason for firing her I'm sure it would be documented in her personnel file. I'm sure he could also produce witnesses that would testify as to the reason she was fired. Plus, if it were me, I wouldn't let a lie like that stand without making any attempt to defend myself. I don't beleive he even denied the charges to the press.

I don't think that absence of evidence is necessarily evidence in this instance, either.

Have you never argued a point just for the sake of it? I don't think this issue is an election-maker or breaker.

I get you, but I don't think that arguing about silly stuff is keeping me from doing other things to make the world a better place.

This did happen in an Alabama town called Decatur. The woman got fired for being a Kerry supporter. She got a phone call from Senator Kerry, who hired her for the campaign. I really don't think she's making it up. Her employer didn't like her bumper sticker and gave her the shaft for it.
