An 83-year-old woman was removed from a ‘Wisconsin Women for Mitt” event after spitting in the face of a Romney supporter.
The Appleton Post-Crescent reports that Mary Hoglund interrupted state Sen. Alberta Darling during her presentation in Grand Chute, Wis., asking “Why are you against Planned Parenthood?” After being shushed by Romney supporters, video shows Hoglund spitting in the face of a elderly woman who told her to “zip it” and warning her to “get out of my face.”
