• Obama supporter in Summit earns visit from cops, assault charge

    by  • November 6, 2012 • Uncategorized

    As a Republican, it takes some guts to pass out slate cards and voter information in Summit County.

    It’s a key county for Democrats and is union heavy.

    But that didn’t stop Wayne Darlington from working his Coventry precinct as the line of cars grew longer in the parking lot.

    Despite being positioned well outside the required distance from the polling location, an Obama supporter took it upon himself to berate Wayne and then, wait for it…..

    ….throw his 24 oz. cup of coffee at him.

    Fortunately, the act was witnessed by two volunteers and the police were called.

    Our understanding is the Obama supporter earned a visit from the Sheriff and is being charged with assault.

    What is it with Democrats and coffee throwing anyway?

    UPDATE: here are several media links covering the story:
