Police: Driver Tried to Run Over Katherine Harris

Wed Oct 27, 2:12 PM ET Oddly Enough - Reuters



MIAMI (Reuters) - A Florida motorist was arrested on Wednesday on charges of trying to run down U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris (news, bio, voting record) at an intersection where the controversial former state elections chief was campaigning for re-election to Congress.

The Republican lawmaker and several supporters were campaigning alongside a street corner in her hometown of Sarasota Tuesday evening. A silver Cadillac sped toward them, drove up onto the sidewalk where Harris stood, and then swerved away at the last minute, the Sarasota police report said.


No one was hurt. Witnesses noted the car's license tag number and police tracked the owner, Barry Seltzer, 46, of Sarasota, who was jailed early Wednesday on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He said he was annoyed because some of Harris' supporters were blocking traffic, the arrest report said.


"I was exercising my political expression," it quoted him as saying. "I did not run them down, I scared them a little."


Harris was Florida's secretary of state and its top election official during the state's presidential ballot recount battle in 2000. Vilified by Democrats for her role in halting the recounts, she was elected to the House of Representatives in her heavily Republican district in 2002 and faces Democratic challenger Jan Schneider in Tuesday's election.

Yet another example of the Dems refusal to adhere to the bounds of civilised behaviour. They are not behaving like civilized people and may have to be caged to protect those of us who know how to act

I liked how you used E.S.P. to find out that the dude was a democrat.

That guy just had roadrage because the bitch was blocking traffic.

You didn't answer my question. Is it OK if I run you over for those reasons? Yea or nay. Really simple.

The leftist nutroots jumped the gun on the road rage/Obama bumper sticker incident yesterday. With scant evidence in sight, they pinned Harry Weisiger's motive for road rage bumper car incident on Obama hatred. They even tried to drag the Tea Party into all of it. The leftist blogosphere and accomplice-press should be ashamed.The evidence on Harry Weisiger's Obama hatred/intent is an inch deep and a mile long and a police report still hasn't surfaced.

Even more pathetic and indefensible is that leftists in the nutroots gleefully attacked a man that lost his wife to cancer only two weeks ago. Perhaps that is why they are attacking him so and even distributing his address and phone number.

Where is your shame, liberals? Answer - until proven otherwise - it is nonexistent. Anything fits into the left's twisted worldview, even using Harry Weisiger in a quest to fit their distorted anti-Tea Party meme. Based on the violent rhetoric noted in the comment section here at the Left Coast Rebel, perhaps leftists are showing their eliminationist intent. Perhaps they didn't even care that Harry Weisiger just lost his wife to cancer. This story has everything to do with a grieving and troubled man and likely nothing to do with Obama-hate.

    Being in Nashville and having lived here most of my life, this isn't surprising. Not the road rage part, the moron seeking media attn for it. This guy has been on every news channel giving interviews and is already talking about how it is a hate crime.
    I couldn't care less what the friend says. I've seen the traffic report (yes I am an officer) and what REALLY happened was Duren sitting at a stop sign chatting with his daughter and pissing the ppl behind him off. yes, it was wrong to ram the guy. Yes, the driver needs to go to jail. But I'm sure regardless of the facts, it will be turned into a "Tea Partier goes crazy" story.

You tell'em zappy!  :rockon:

Quote:

"Criminal Court Judge Leon Ruben sentenced Weisiger to serve 48 hours in jail for the DUI conviction and placed him on probation for two years, during which time he is required to undergo alcohol treatment. He is also to complete 48 hours of community service, pay a $350 fine and lose his license for a year. And Ruben ordered him to issue a written apology to Duren and his daughter."




It's only balanced and fair to hear both sides of the story.  Just because the evidence was sufficient that Weisiger was drunk and violent, we should totally cast doubt on the "innocent victims" account that the violent drunk was pissed off about a political bumper sticker.

I bet that left nutroot lefty waited all day at the stop light just trying to bait some poor hardworking guy who just lost his wife two weeks ago to cancer.  Assholes.

Oh let me go write some shit on a blog with whatever name I set it up with and then link it as proof.

Even my non-computing ass can figure that one out.
