Nobody saw this kind of thing coming – not!


A Florida Trump volunteer said she pepper-sprayed a Clinton supporter who got in her face and responded to the spray by knocking her down.

Jupiter police were investigating after Donna Tatlici said Tom Garrecht screamed at her that he didn’t need anyone’s help with his vote outside the Jupiter Community Center, WPBF-TV reported. Investigators said the fight happened when he walked outside from voting around 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

Representatives for the Jupiter Police Department didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Tatlici warned Garrecht she had pepper spray and would use it on him when he cursed “right into my face,” she told The Palm Beach Post. He didn’t back off, so she pepper-sprayed him, she said. Garrecht then slammed her to the ground and punched her, according to Tatlici.

Is it even legal to carry pepper spray that close to a voting location? Oh, right – the proper way to respond to loud expletives is to use a chemical weapon! It’s okay, but only if you’re Republican, I guess…
