Wife-Beating Politican of the Day
Today's violent Republican is Mark Olson of the Minnesota State House. And yes, there are fifty other guys named "Mark Olson" in the Minnesota State House, but this is the crazy-eyed one.
Showing typical midwestern politeness, he waited until after the elections to beat up on his wife, bruising her on Sunday and appearing in court this morning to not answer the charges. Olson refused to enter a plea, because he did it, but it would inappropriate to say as much.
Olson's wife says he "pushed her to the ground three times," while Olson admits only to "placing her to the ground." As we said, they're very polite up there.
Yes, we as posting this mostly for the crazy eyes.
