Ohio woman claims firing for Obama vote



Published: Wed, February 20, 2013 @ 1:35 p.m.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A southwest Ohio woman says she was fired three days after the presidential election because of her vote for President Barack Obama.

The woman has filed a lawsuit in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court seeking damages starting at $25,000 against Q-Mark Inc. and its president. The Dayton-based company is a manufacturers’ representative business and defense contractor.

The Dayton Daily News reports that Patricia Kunkle alleges that company president Roberta Gentile told employees last year that Obama supporters would be the first to be terminated if he got re-elected.

Kunkle had become a full-time employee of the company in May 2012 and says she never received any negative evaluations or disciplinary action.

The company says she was laid off for economic reasons and cited uncertainty over U.S. defense spending.

GOOD !!!! We can only hope more defense companies follow suit. Because when OBAMMY was re-elected he said he was going to cut defense spending. As far as I'm concerned she caused herself to lose her job. After all ,the way things work last hired, first fired. She vote for him ,now she can live with the consequences LMAO!!
I guess she can't use the race card issue.

Amazing that this man and his company suck off the tit of government and they resent a democrat being elected for fear of bigger "government."
