Furious Over Obama Win: Arizona Woman Runs Down Husband With Car For Not Voting

15

An Arizona woman, in despair at the re-election of Democratic President Barack Obama, ran down her husband with the family car in suburban Phoenix on Saturday because he failed to vote in the election, police said on Monday.

Holly Solomon, 28, was arrested after running over husband Daniel Solomon following a wild chase that left him pinned underneath the vehicle.

Daniel Solomon, 36, was in critical condition at a local hospital, but is expected to survive, Gilbert police spokesman Sergeant Jesse Sanger said.

Police said Daniel Solomon told them his wife became angry over his “lack of voter participation” in last Tuesday’s presidential election and believed her family would face hardship as a result of Obama winning another term.

Witnesses reported the argument broke out on Saturday morning in a parking lot and escalated. Mrs Solomon then chased her husband around the lot with the car, yelling at him as he tried to hide behind a light pole, police said. He was struck after attempting to flee to a nearby street.

Obama won the national election with 332 electoral votes compared with 206 for Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Arizona’s 11 electoral votes were won by Romney.

  1. I value YWN in that it keeps me up to date with the news affecting the global frum community. I ask that you please be more discerning in your choice of news items. Why do we need to hear this?

  2. #6 What is the difference if they get divorced? As is, she will be in jail for a very long time, and for Daniel it is more economical filing taxes at a married rate than at a single rate.

  3. So Romney wins Arizona, loses the general election, and an Arizona woman tries to kill her husband because his Arizona vote cost Romney the election?
    This is too weird for The Onion to make up.
    Yes, truth is stranger than fiction

  4. Its about time we see republicans do away with people because until now I thought it was only democrats. After all they are for baby murder (they call it abortion), the president voted YES for after birth abortion, and they are happy with ending life early for the sake of saving money in ObamaDoesntCare.
