Arizona woman runs down husband with car for not voting:
police
Reuters - 15 hrs ago
PHOENIX (Reuters) - 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.

Not surprised at all. The republican party is psychotic.

Shame she got caught before running down the rest of the 51% of voters that Romney needed to make up his 100 point Electoral College deficit.

The funniest part of this story is the Arizona's electoral votes went to Romney...his vote didn't even matter.

I still don't get the electoral voting system in the U.S how do they count how much each state is worth? It seems to me whoever owns both Florida and California wins the election, since the individual votes don't count for much.

The recent rise of 'your vote counts' is garbage. Your vote doesn't count and even if it did, who cares, both candidates are always worthless. Yes, even Obama... Nothing has changed

Based on the population census. You get a electoral vote per senator, so automatic 2, then one for each representative. Minimum of 1 to 20 or something. The number of representatives is now set, so as the census changes, some states may lose or gain depending on their population.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2012 12:38:40 PM PST
The number of electoral votes is equal the number of senators plus representatives for each state, which is determined by relative population. California has the most electoral votes because it has the largest population of any state. Texas is second, then Florida and New York.

See, you're nice like that. With a truck, at least there's a higher chance of outright killing someone. Much more humane that way. Democrat?

This is not at all recent.

Not unless the truck is a hybrid or government vehicle.

Agreed. We haven't killed enough civilians with drone strikes in Pakistan. He needs four more years.

Wakka wakka.

Each state gets electoral votes based on population or something. ninjas

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2012 12:48:02 PM PST
Btw, a presidential candidate can easily win both Florida and California and still lose the election. Those two states accounted for 93 electoral votes in the 2012 election, and a candidate must have at least 273 electoral votes to win the presidency.

I know. I thought the husband was supposed to tell the wife how to vote, in Republican families.

Poor guy. I don't see how that is something that can be "patched up".

The two of them across from each other in marriage counselor's office:

"Now: Dan, tell Holly how it made you feel - when she pinned your body underneath her moving vehicle."
