GRAND CHUTE, WI (WTAQ) - Grand Chute Police are recommending charges against an elderly woman who spit in the face of a Mitt Romney supporter last week.
83-year-old Mary Hoglund attended a “Women for Mitt” event that featured speakers Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefish and GOP Senator Aldberta Darling. While Darling was speaking, Hoglund interrupted her and asked why she was against Planned Parenthood.
Another elderly woman at the event confronted Hoglund and got in her face, she responded by spitting in supporters face. The Romney supporter then smacked Hoglund in the head.
The whole incident was caught on video by Fox 11 WLUK-TV.
Hoglund was then escorted out, while chants of “Romney” rang out from the group of supporters.
Hoglund also was scratched in the face, and left in an ambulance.
Grand Chute police are recommending charges of disorderly conduct against Hoglund. If the district attorney doesn’t file charges, police will ticket where she will have to pay a fine.
No other charges are expected to be filed against the Romney supporters involved in the scuffle.
