Police Called on GOP Volunteer at Patrick Henry Elementary

Election officials called police when a Republican precinct captain became unruly outside Patrick Henry Elementary School in Arlington Heights this afternoon.

The man, a local resident named John Moroz, Jr., said he was passing out voting guides outside the school — as he has done every year since 1998 — when a voter directed profane language at him for being a Republican.

Moroz said he started shouting at the man, who left the scene by the time police arrived.

After he calmed down, Moroz complained to police about the lack of parking in the parking lot. No police action was taken, and Moroz ultimately returned to his volunteer duties.

    I’m a Dem–but why is this story here? Sounds like this guy was exercising his rights and was treated rudely, whereupon he reacted in kind, as most of us would probably do, right or wrong. If the police determined he’d done nothing wrong, then why run his name through the mud here?

    People need to watch it. The GOP in Arlington has been ignored or dumped on for too long. They are “mad as hell, and they aren’t going to take it much longer.

      That’s just grand. Have a nice day…in Texas.

      What are they going to do? “Exercise their 2nd Amendment rights”? You Tea Baggers are a trip.

    Stories like this are what keep me coming back to this website, and what got me started posting to these stories. There are classless Dems just like there are classless Republicans.

    Stories like this make it obvious that this site is clearly agenda driven.

    On a much happier note- “Secure Communities Opt Out” was not on the ballot, and Tejada and his MS-13 amigos did not send any suicide car bombs to the polling places… this time!

    Keep siding with criminality and lawlessness, and it won’t be too long, neighbors…

      I guess your comment puts you in the Classless Republican category.
