Mary Hoglund, 83, spits in Romney supporter's face during Wisconsin event [VIDEO]
A Romney supporter reacts to be splattered with Hoglund's spit.
Wisconsin's politics are so divisive, even 80-something-year-old women are nearly coming to blows these days.
At a Romney campaign event last Friday in Grand Chute, 83-year-old Mary Hoglund hocked a loogie in the face of Romney supporter who looks like she was also born during the Coolidge administration. Hoglund was then escorted out of the event as Republicans serenaded her with chants of "Rom-ney! Rom-ney!"
The altercation took place as state Sen. Alberta Darling, R-River Hills, made remarks during the kickoff event for a tour entitled "Wisconsin Women for Mitt."
Darling is speaking to the audience when a female protester disrupts the "Wisconsin Women for Mitt" event and tries to ask a question: "Why are you against Planned Parenthood?"
When another woman asks the protester to hold her question, the protester says, "Get out of my face" and spits in hers...
Grand Chute police are reviewing the altercation for potential charges, the Appleton Post-Crescent reports.
Here's the footage:
Looks like these two old ladies still have some unfinished business with each other. It would make for a pretty compelling UFC pay-per-view main event, wouldn't it?
