    Holly Solomon, 28, who ran over her husband with her SUV after discovering he did not vote in last week's election. The woman, who is six months pregnant, was enraged when she discovered her husband Daniel did not vote, because she believes President Obama's reelection would bring hardship to their family. Daniel was attempting to run behind a light post to escape his wife's wrath when he was struck. He is now in critical condition in an Arizona hospital. Solomon told officers she was only trying to scare her husband, but accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake.


    Christopher Castillo, 28, of Melbourne, Florida, who threatened the life of President Obama on Facebook, then made matters worse during an interview with the Secret Service. Castillo posted on Facebook, "That's the last straw, if he gets reelected I'm going to hunt him down and kill him- watch the life disappear from his eyes." When a Facebook friend responded that threatening the president's life was a crime, Castillo replied, "I wouldn't call it a threat, but more of a promise, let them come after me. Be more than happy to take a few of them with me." When the Secret Service had a "little chat" with Castillo, he made matters worse, shouting expletives to describe how he would fight the president. He added that he would, "scream and yell at him and tell him he was a terrorist." When the federal agent told Castillo that his statements were a violation of federal law, Castillo remarked that "it did not matter." Castillo remains in custody and is scheduled to be fitted with a GPS monitoring device.

OR HOW 'BOUT .....

    Denise Helms, a 22-year-old woman from Turlock, California, who used Facebook to express her own dislike for President Obama winning reelection. She wrote, "Another 4 years of this [expletive]. Maybe he will get assassinated this term." Her employer, Cold Stone Creamery, heard about the post and fired her. The Secret Service also appears to have become interested in her opinion. Helms, who apparently still doesn't get it, told local media in Sacramento, "OK. But what did I do wrong?"


    Reginald Arnez Roberson, 52, who blamed his speeding and drunk driving arrest on President Obama winning re-election. Roberson initially told deputies, "just take me to jail, I know I had too much to drink." Then he got belligerent and told the deputy that he will have his (expletive) job and the only reason he got busted is because he was "black" and the deputy "was mad Obama won."
