“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”
— Albert Einstein
The Election Day stupidity award goes to Jeffery Steitz of Louisville, Kentucky, a poll worker who managed to get himself arrested after allegedly assaulting a voter.
The dispute started at about 9:30 a.m EST at a UAW hall serving as a polling place. The voter told Steitz he did not want to vote in a judicial election because he didn’t know enough about the candidates, Yates said. Steitz told the voter he had to vote in the race, Yates said.
The dispute escalated with Steitz grabbing the voter by the neck and throwing him out of the polling place, Yates said.
Sometimes, the only thing you can do is laugh.
