Mesa resident Holly Solomon thinks it’s her husband’s fault that President Obama was re-elected last week, because he didn’t vote. Not only does Solomon, 28, have a thorough misunderstanding of our nation’s electoral system, she also ran over her husband with her car because of this, according to Gilbert police.
In an e-mail to media, Gilbert police Sergeant Jesse Sanger says the argument started in a parking lot Saturday morning over Daniel Solomon’s lack of voter participation. “According to Daniel, Holly believed her family was going to face hardship as a result of President Obama’s re-election,” Sanger says.
Witnesses told police that there was a lot of yelling before Holly Solomon hopped in her Jeep, and started chasing her husband around the parking lot.
Her husband tried to use a light pole to shield himself, and Solomon drove around the light pole several times as she continued to yell at him. Eventually, her husband made a run for it, but Solomon hit him, pinning him under the car and on a curb, according to police.
Daniel Solomon’s currently in critical condition at a hospital. Holly Solomon was booked into jail on charges of domestic violence and aggravated assault, and there are no indications she was impaired by alcohol or drugs at the time, according to Sanger.
At the risk of sounding like a cold cynic, voter outreach: you’re doing it very, very wrong.
But in all seriousness, I wish I were shocked this happened. But after the insane demonization of Barack Obama by right-wingers, I’m more shocked something like this didn’t happen sooner. In a strange way, it’s sad that she was so convinced her family was going to face hardship that she had such an extreme reaction to her husband not voting to stop it — not that his vote would have prevented Obama’s re-election or ensured Arizona’s electoral votes went to Romney, which they already did. And she did this, according to police, stone-cold sober.
Holy hell. I feel like there’s more to this story.
The University of Wyoming’s paper trolls us all by evoking the famous “Dewey Defeats Truman” headline.
Very funny, guys.

I assure you, Matt Drudge, President Obama did not win Wyoming. I promise.
Starting right… about… NOW!
Salon’s Joan Walsh, regarding the misguided, hollow efforts by the Romney/Ryan team to collect donations for victims of Hurricane Sandy in Dayton, Ohio. The campaign reportedly dropped $5,000 on supplies at a local Wal-Mart for attendees to give to Romney for the sake of photo ops. What, no soup kitchens to invade?
Does Mittens listen to himself talk? No, really. I’m curious.
