Obama's re-election drives Key West man to suicide, cops say

A Key West resident who police say was distraught over the presidential election results and worried about his business has apparently killed himself.

Police say they found Henry Hamilton's body in his bedroom Nov. 8, along with a living will with handwritten words “Do not revive! (expletive) Obama!” Two empty prescription empty pill bottles were in the dining room.

Hamilton's partner Michael Cossey told Key West police he last saw Hamilton when they watched the election results together. According to the police report, Hamilton was upset and said, “If Barack gets re-elected, I'm not going to be around.”

Cossey says Hamilton was anxious about his tanning business. Police say Cossey found Hamilton's body after returning home from a night of playing cards with friends.

Authorities do not suspect foul play.

What a shame! I'm sure Obama feels his pain.

He should have considered Living In Costa Rica like many Americans are doing.

Sounds more like something a zer0 worshiper would do if mittens got elected.

Henry Hamilton's partner Michael Cossey

Do they mean partner, or do they mean 'partner"?

How awful. Seems a lot of us feel the same way. Doomed. Poor fella.

Not a chance, riot, loot, burn is more like it.

Hmmm, I would suspect Obama worshipers would be more likely to stage a hate crime hoax then kill themselves.

A friend asked me just today if I could see anything positive coming out of the election and I replied, "I haven't committed suicide yet."

It was a joke. Really.

If it’s Key West, odds are more than excellent it’s THAT partner!

The guy is dead by his own hand, does it matter? The other thread on the suicide is obsessed with whether the guy was homosexual or not.

What a shame...looks like the number of gay GOP voters has been reduced by at least 10 percent

Or 100%! You make a very good point. The House is our only hope for the next 4 years.

I very much doubt that in 15 years SocSec will exist for me. Even if it does, I really don’t care. They will be swamping my kids in massive taxes. I don’t want a dime from this government. I want them to just leave me and my family alone to live freely. Since they won’t do that, perhaps finding another corrupt nation, except one with really nice beaches everywhere and a relatively low cost of living, is perhaps a good alternative. If I have to ‘pay to play’ anyhow, I might as well be getting my money’s worth. Costa Rica is looking quite nice. :)
