Jeffrey Radle of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin was hospitalized on Tuesday after his wife Amanda Radle hit him with the family SUV, leading to head, neck and back injuries.
According to Chippewa Falls Police Chief Wendy L. Stelter the couple had been arguing over the gubernatorial recall election primary. According to Stelter:
“She was planning on voting for a certain candidate, and it wasn’t the candidate he wanted her to vote for.”
Amanda, 30, attempted to pull out of the family driveway when Jeffrey, 36 tried to block her. According to a police department statement Jeffrey didn’t want Amanda to vote against Scott Walker who Jeffrey believed should remain in office.
The report says Jeffrey was “nudged” by his wife and would “retreat and re-establish his ground” and “at one point he climbed onto the hood.”
When Mrs. Radle finally attempted to actually leave Jeffrey Radle jumped in front of the SUV and was hit.
In a moment of redneck rage Radle’s brother Mike said of the recall:
“These crazy liberal nuts are always pulling this crap.”
This apparently isn’t the first time police have been called to the residence.
In the meantime the Chippewa County district attorney’s office is investigating the case and could press charges. As the police chief rightfully proclaims:
“To think that people would become that distraught over an election is very concerning.”
Perhaps someone should educate Mr. Radle about the seriousness of voter intimidation laws in the United States, a felony over such a silly incident probably wouldn’t look great on his record.
