Woman Allegedly Runs Over Husband for 'Helping' to Re-Elect President Obama

Posted by Sasha Brown-Worsham on November 13, 2012

woman ran over husband over electionHolly Solomon is allegedly really upset that President Barack Obama won his bid for re-election. She is so upset that, according to police, the pregnant 28-year-old from Arizona RAN OVER HER HUSBAND with an SUV because he didn't vote. Wow. ALL the psychos are crawling out of the woodwork on this one.

Solomon is looking at a whole lot of prison time and her poor husband is looking at a whole lot of recovery time (he is in critical condition) all because his wife allegedly has poor impulse control and is clearly a moron, too. Solomon may be sad to learn that even had her husband voted, the results would have been the same because a) Obama won by WAY more than one vote, and b) Arizona went to candidate Mitt Romney anyway.

Look, it's great that this psycho wants us to all celebrate our American pride and get to the polls. It's our civic duty! But, um, could you learn a little bit about history and our country before you put the pedal to the metal?

Those of us on the left get it. You're disappointed your candidate lost and that is too bad. It's never fun to be on the losing end of a campaign, especially when you believed in the change. But here's what: This IS democracy. This is how it works. So all this talk of secession and overt racism and RUNNING HUSBANDS OVER LIKE DOGS only makes people look like fools.

If they EVER want any chance of winning, the Republican right is going to have to work on appearing a lot more sane.

This is how elections work. In 2000 and 2004, I was upset. All my friends were upset. We cried. We raged (among one another). We complained that the rest of the country was clearly moronic. But then, the next morning, we moved on. We got back to our lives, and you know what? I am here, 12 years later, doing far better in my career. My husband and I both finished graduate school, had children, advanced in our careers, quadrupled our salaries, and bought houses.

It's not that bad. Even if you loathe Obama, it's your own damn fault if you can't manage to make something of your life.

No candidate or president can keep you from having a happy life. It just shouldn't affect us THAT much. So cry, get upset, and beat your fists, but do it in the privacy of your own home. Then compose yourself, learn a bit about history (see there's this THING now called the electoral college that means your one vote can only swing your state, not the whole election), and set about making YOUR life better. Jeesh.

Why do you think people are overreacting so much to this election?

The operative word here is "allegedly".

I hope the husband makes a speedy recovery and gets a quickie divorce.

Seen plenty of "overreaction" from both sides, truth be told.

It's been all of a week, this too shall pass. We dealt with it for 4 years after Bush took the 2000 election. The lady that ran over her husband, well something else wasn't right there and that was just the straw that broke open crazy.

 "All the psychos"? Wow. Way to slander and stigmatize people suffering from a mental illness. Sheesh.

I do not accept your premise.

I do not believe that she over reacted at all.

I'd be real surprised if she didn't have prior mental issues or if they were having major relationship issues. Preggo hormones prob played a part, too. I agree with PP that this was just the last straw for this chick.

This has nothing to do with the election and everything to do with a crazy woman running over her husband. I don't care what her "excuse" is. Crazy people do crazy things every day. If it wasn't the election it would have been something else. Romney got Arizona anyway so it wouldn't have made any difference if her husband had voted or who he had voted for. I feel sorry for her husband and unborn child. I hope him and the child have a good life together while her butt sits in prison for attempted murder.

Pure hate at its core.

My husband is a republican and when he saw a video about Romney and how he feels about IR couples it became personal...he voted Obama this time.

Alot of my republican friends do not like this divide either.Although dissapointed about Romney..believe in one America.United we stand...and united we fall.I am blessed to be living in a wonderful state that voted Obama and for a dem governor!

What are you claiming that Romney said about IR couples?
