Ohio Poll Worker Assualts Voter; Bites His Nose
Voter Greg Flanagan (pictured) was bitten on the nose by an election monitor, known as a “rover,” over a dispute over how far campaign workers must be from polling places.
When the dispute at the Gloria Dei Evangelical Lutheran Church on Memphis Avenue seemed to be settled, the rover, James Williams of Cleveland, walked away.
Then a nearby voter, Greg Flanagan, defending the campaign worker, mumbled, “You don’t have to be such an ass.” Williams overheard Flanagan, and according to him and others, Williams attacked…
Flanagan, 49, of Cleveland, said, “He head-butted me. He bit my nose. He tried to bite it off.”
Andre Bell, the polling location coordinator, pulled Williams off Flanagan. Then, Bell said, Williams jumped into his car and drove off.
Flanagan was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, where he was treated for “human bite,” according to the hospital release form.Click here for reuse options!
