Anti-Obama Woman Accused of Running Over Nonvoting Husband

A pregnant Arizona woman who “hated” President Obama and was upset by last Tuesday’s election result allegedly ran down her husband in a Jeep SUV because he didn’t vote, multiple news outlets are reporting.

Politico:

Holly Solomon, 28, and her husband Daniel, 36, got into an argument Saturday night over his failure to vote, news reports say. She then chased him around a parking lot in the Jeep, screaming, before hitting him as he tried to run to a bigger street, witnesses told police, according to the report.

“The husband told investigators that Solomon believed her family was going to face hardship from President Barack Obama’s re-election,” CBS News reported.

He is in critical condition at a Scottsdale, Ariz. medical center, while she was booked on charges of aggravated assault and domestic violence, the report said.

Incidentally, Mitt Romney carried the state and its 11 electoral votes.
