Tennessee Man Punches Ladyfriend Over Mitt Romney's Facebook Profile

Mothers, lock up your daughters. Husbands, lock up your wives. Anderson County Sheriff's Department, lock up your emotionally insecure misogynists who think Mitt Romney is prowling the Facebooks.

Claxton, Tenn., man Lowell Turpin, 40, was charged with domestic assault relating to a July 22 incident in which Turpin mistook a post from Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on his girlfriend's Facebook wall as something more than banal campaign season's tidings from the 30-something apparatchik tasked with running his/her candidate's profile page.

From Knox News:

He suspected his live-in girlfriend of planning an affair, and when he saw a picture of a man he didn't recognize on her Facebook page, it set him off, according to reports.

Lowell Turpin "angrily demanded to know who the male was," an Anderson County Sheriff's Department incident report states.

The answer, his girlfriend told him: presidential contender Mitt Romney.

Upset at the woman's "attempting to communicate with friends through her Facebook account," Turpin jerked her laptop computer from her grasp, smashed the machine into a wall, and then hit her in the face with his fist, according to reports.

The 40-year-old Turpin remains in the Anderson County Jail, charged with domestic assault in connection with the July 22 incident in Anderson County's Claxton community.

The woman told a deputy that Turpin "has been violent toward her multiple times over several years."
