Hillary Fan Stabs Obama Supporting In-Law

From CBS News:

In-Laws’ Political Dispute Ends In Stabbing

UPPER PROVIDENCE, Pa. (CBS 3) ― The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office is investigating a politically motivated stabbing that left one in-law hospitalized and another in prison.

Authorities said brother-in-laws Jose Ortiz and Sean Shurelds were involved in a verbal altercation over Democratic presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton when the argument escalated into a stabbing inside their family home on Honey Locust Court in Upper Providence.

Authorities said Ortiz, a registered Republican and Clinton supporter, allegedly stabbed Shurelds, an Obama supporter, in the stomach. Ortiz told police Shurelds began to choke him, so he grabbed a knife and stabbed him.

Shurelds was flown to an area hospital and was listed in critical condition. He is expected to recover from his wounds.

Ortiz, 28, was jailed on $20,000 bail. He is facing charges of felony, aggravated assault, and other related offenses.

“It is a very serious charge, we see people fight over many things; some of them very frivolous, some of them serious, the fact of the matter is that this is the kind of argument that takes place in households across the region, across the state, across the country, but it never turns violent like this,” Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Veti Ferman said.

According to Pennsylvania Voting Rights, if convicted of a felony crime, he will not be able to vote in the upcoming election.

Mr. Ortiz should look at the bright side.

If either of the Democrats win they will probably push through a federal law mandating that all felons be allowed to vote along with all illegal aliens.

Of course if he really is a registered Republican (which I somehow doubt), he might still be excluded.
