Bush: Minus One Vote in FLA

West Boynton man allegedly threatens to kill girlfriend for backing Kerry:

WEST BOYNTON -- When an 18-year-old couldn't convince his girlfriend that George W. Bush was the right choice for president, he became enraged, put a screwdriver to her throat and threatened to kill her, sheriff's officials said.

"You won't live to see the next election," Steven Soper told Stacey Silveira on Tuesday night as the two fought inside his gray, two-story home west of Boynton Beach, according to a police report.

Palm Beach County Circuit Court Judge William Bollinger ordered Wednesday that Soper be held without bond in the Palm Beach County Jail pending a mental health assessment.

His next court date is Friday...

Yeah, but Jeb wants to know if Soper still plans to make it to the polls on time. Maybe the guy voted early.
