Democratic Wife Hits Republican Husband With Car Over Walker Recall (Not An Onion Story) |

This past Tuesday, Amanda Radle attempted to drive to the polls to vote in the Wisconsin Democratic Primaries to select embattled Gov. Scott Walkers’ replacement opponent. Her husband, a staunch and apparently not too bright Republican refused to allow her to leave the driveway. Jeffery Radle stood in front of his wife’s SUV to block her profress even as she nudged him with her 2+ ton Dodge Durango. At one point, Mr. Radle even jumped on the hood of the car.


Finally, Mr’s Radle made an attempt to drive around her husband and Mr. Radle, in a move worthy of a Darwin Award Honorable Mention, literally jumped in front of the vehicle with highly predictable results. Mr. Radle was left unconscious with head, neck and back injuries. Mrs. Radle left the scene of the attempted suicide accident and drove to the police station to turn herself in. According to theChippewa Herald, the soon-to-be-ex-Mrs. Radle was charged with second-degree recklessly endangering safety and domestic battery. She was later released on a $500 signature bond and ordered to have no contact with her husband.

11. She should have called the police and had her husband

arrested for holding her against her will or whatever charge the police could come up with.
