Politics: It's Stab-tastic!

Wow, and I thought the political debate here got a little hairy. No wonder they call Pennsylvania a "Battleground State."

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. (CBS 3) - The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office is investigating a politically motivated stabbing that left one in-law hospitalized and another in prison.

Authorities said brother-in-laws Jose Ortiz and Sean Shurelds were involved in a verbal altercation over Democratic presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton when the argument escalated into a stabbing inside their family home on Honey Locust Court in Collegeville.

Authorities said Ortiz, a registered Republican and Clinton supporter, allegedly stabbed Shurelds, an Obama supporter, in the stomach. Ortiz told police Shurelds began to choke him, so he grabbed a knife and stabbed him.

"Their verbal argument turned physical, one began choking the other, and then the victim of the choking took a kitchen knife and stabbed his brother-in-law in the stomach," Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Veti Ferman said.

Shurelds was flown to an area hospital and was listed in critical condition. He is expected to recover from his wounds. Ortiz, 28, was jailed on $20,000 bail. He is facing charges of felony, aggravated assault, and other related offenses. (H/T - CBS3)

The moral of the story? Anyone who supports either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton is nuts.
