Woman to cops: No jail, I'm Republican

She thought otherwise, but an Iowa woman's political leanings couldn't keep her out of the slammer.
Employees at a P.F. Chang's restaurant in West Des Moines had tried to remove Charlene Hunziker, 47, after she went on a political rant extolling the virtues of Mitt Romney and screaming about how "Obama had ruined this country," West Des Moines Patch reported.
A customer called police, fearing Hunziker could hurt one of the employees.
When officers arrived, Hunziker told them they didn't need to be there because she's a Republican.
After refusing to leave, she fought officers trying to handcuff her and later told them "she was doing this because she was a good mother," according to Patch.
Hunziker has been charged with public intoxication.
