jsonline: A Chippewa Falls man who repeatedly tried to block his estranged wife from driving to the polls Tuesday was hospitalized with head, neck and back injuries when she struck him with her sport utility vehicle.
Jeffrey Radle, a Gov. Scott Walker supporter, was on foot. Amanda Radle, a recall proponent, was in a Dodge Durango. The pair had been arguing early Tuesday afternoon over who she was going to vote for in the gubernatorial recall election primary, said Chippewa Falls Police Chief Wendy L. Stelter.
"She was planning on voting for a certain candidate, and it wasn't the candidate he wanted her to vote for." When Amanda attempted to pull out, Jeffrey stood in front of her ... She nudged him with the vehicle several times. Each time he would "retreat and re-establish his ground," the release said. "At one point he climbed onto the hood." When she finally attempted to drive around him, Jeffrey Radle jumped in front of the vehicle and was hit. Amanda left the scene and went to the police department to report the incident.
"These crazy liberal nuts are always pulling this crap," said Radle's brother, Mike Radle, describing himself and his brother as firm supporters of Walker, the subject of the recall.
Police have been called to the residence several times in the past, and the couple was believed to be separated, Stelter said.
Mike Radle said it was "one of the women candidates" - either former Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk or state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout of Alma.
"To think that people would become that distraught over an election is very concerning," the chief said.
-Looks to me like he wanted a ride to the polling place and she was denying him that ride. Liberals will do anything to stifle the rights of others.
-These crazy liberal nuts are always pulling this crap" Seriously? Just another Republican trying to suppress voting rights.
-Am I missing something here? The right wing nut job stands in front of her car and holds her captive, preventing her from excercizing her RIGHT to vote, and his brother calls her a crazy liberal? I predicted yesterday that he was the Rep, and she was the Dem, and I was right.
-Wow, check out CCAP on these two brothers. Maybe these criminals are Walker's "tools". Maybe if he wins the recall he will reward them for their support by hiring them.
