Hillary Clinton supporter stabs brother-in-law

Jose Antonio OrtizA MAN stabbed his own brother-in-law over a Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama argument, according to reports.

The rivalry between the two candidates, who are vying to be named the Democratic Party candidate in this year's US presidential election, has gripped the nation. And as the endgame approaches, it seems even their supporters are starting to play dirty.

Jose Antonio Ortiz, a Clinton supporter, allegedly stabbed his brother-in-law Sean Shurelds in the stomach after they argued over the race for nomination.

Shurelds, 41, an Obama supporter, told Ortiz his candidate was "trashing" Clinton, in reference to a string of recent victories by the Illinois senator in preliminary voting in various states.

According to the police report, Ortiz replied that "Obama was not a realist" before the argument, in the kitchen of a Pennsylvania home, turned physical. After some mutual choking and punching, the 28-year-old allegedly stabbed Shurelds in the stomach.

He has been charged with aggravated assault, among other charges, while Shurelds was flown to a nearby hospital, where he was admitted in critical condition.
