The cut-throat world of presidential politics usually doesn’t go this far to get its point across.
But Jose Ortiz, 28 — a Hillary Clinton supporter — is behind bars after stabbing his Barack Obama-supporting brother-in-law, Sean Shurelds, following a political argument, according to KYW1060.com.
“One is a supporter of Barack Obama, the other is a supporter of Hillary Clinton, and an argument of words turned bloody when one brother-in-law tried to choke the other and the victim then responded with a knife and stabbed his brother-in-law in the stomach,”Montgomery County, Pa., District Attorney Risa Furman said, according to KYW.
Shurelds was taken to the hospital in critical condition, and police allegedly found the weapon in a dishwasher at the Collegeville home where the two brawled.
Ortiz faces felony assault charges and was being held on $20,000 bond.
KYW reports that if Ortiz is convicted of the felony charge, he won’t be able to vote.
On a side note: Voter registration records reveal that Ortiz, who supports Clinton, is registered Republican.
