The legend is born…

Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner told reporters this morning of a woman in Escambia County, Florida who would be denied her opportunity to vote.

Evidently, she  broke her leg in the parking lot outside her polling precinct, but was carried into the polls by her husband to vote — before going to the hospital for treatment.

“We’re grateful for her interest and passion to vote,” said Detzner.

Please keep this woman in mind before you complain about having waiting in line to vote today.
