In this contentious primary season, conversations of the political sort can sometimes get heated. That seems to have been the case at a Cleveland poling place this morning. A volunteer manning the voting operation at the Louisa May Alcott Elementary School “got into an argument with a fellow poll worker and pulled a .380 pistol out of his backpack, (Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer) Ciaccia said. He didn’t point the gun at anyone, but verbally threatened people, she added.” . . .
He was arrested may be charged with “aggravated menacing, carrying concealed weapon and having weapons under a disability.” He was also found to have have been carrying a small amount of weed, so there’s that, too.
If Ohio’s like most states, volunteers have to identify themselves as either Democrats or Republicans in order to evenly staff the polls. What are the odds that the cleveland.com report would have ID’d his party affiliation if the miscreant had been a GOP volunteer?
