The Racine County District Attorney's office will be reviewing possible charges against a Village of Caledonia man for allegedly assaulting a Barack Obama campaign worker. The victim is a woman from Chicago who was going door to door in the mostly rural community. She claims to have encountered a man who physically escorted her off his property by pulling her hair from behind. The property owner is a 71-year-old former Marine, who admits to supporting John McCain and tells the Racine Journal Times their face-to-face outside his home got heated. The man claims the Obama worker got in his face and was asked to leave the property several times. The accused says he regrets what happened, and he'll take responsibility.
Meanwhile, both major parties are weighing in. The Racine County GOP condemned campaign violence and vandalism. It told people on both sides to quote, "take a deep breath and remember that the basis of democracy is respectful discourse, and respect for the rights of others." Phil Walczak of the Obama campaign called the incident extremely rare and they're grateful the volunteer is doing well.
