Democratic House Divided: Pennsylvania Man Stabs Brother-In-Law Over Election

The cut-throat world of presidential politics usually doesn’t go this far to get its point across.

But Jose Ortiz, 28 — a Hillary Clinton supporter — is behind bars after stabbing his Barack Obama-supporting brother-in-law, Sean Shurelds, following a political argument, according to KYW1060.com.

“One is a supporter of Barack Obama, the other is a supporter of Hillary Clinton, and an argument of words turned bloody when one brother-in-law tried to choke the other and the victim then responded with a knife and stabbed his brother-in-law in the stomach,” Montgomery County, Pa., District Attorney Risa Furman said, according to KYW.

Shurelds was taken to the hospital in critical condition, and police allegedly found the weapon in a dishwasher at the Collegeville home where the two brawled.
Ortiz faces felony assault charges and was being held on $20,000 bond.

KYW reports that if Ortiz is convicted of the felony charge, he won’t be able to vote.

On a side note: Voter registration records reveal that Ortiz, who supports Clinton, is registered Republican.

People are nuts. Had to laugh when I read that sentence though. Not because the person wouldn't be able to vote for HC, but because it was included in the article.

Also, he'll be able to vote for HC if Texas has an open primary. Highly doubtful that he'd be convicted of anything before next Tuesday.

Choking someone isn't considered violent these days? Obamatard started it. Hilltard stabbed him.

Yep, as usual, the Obama supporter was the first to resort to aggression. Hillary supporters won't just lie there and take it, however. lol

The way you've been going, if this had been the Obama supporter who did the stabbing, you would claim it's symbolic of all his supporters.

He is going for Hillary because she is not 1/2 as bad as that moron Obama. The GOP already knows McCain's somewhat locked-in the nomination, so they are going to influence the Dem primary.
