Ohio woman claims she was fired for Obama vote

A southwest Ohio woman who says she was fired because she voted for President Barack Obama filed a lawsuit against her former employer.
Associated Press
Feb 21, 2013

 

Patricia Kunkle's lawsuit accuses Dayton-based defense contractor Q-Mark Inc. and its president of telling employees that if Obama was re-elected, then his supporters would be the first to be fired, The Dayton Daily News reported.

Brian Wildermuth, an attorney for the company president, said in a statement that Kunkle was laid off for economic reasons — "nothing more."

"I am sure you and your readers are familiar with the ongoing uncertainties regarding defense spending, and thus the economic environment confronting defense contractors," he said. "The allegation that Q-Mark discharged Ms. Kunkle because of her vote is simply false."

Kunkle, of Kettering, has an unlisted phone number and her Dayton attorney didn't immediately respond to a request to speak with her.

The lawsuit, filed in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court on Feb. 14, seeks a minimum of $25,000. It says that Kunkle's vote came up in conversation on Nov. 7, the day after the election, and that she was fired Nov. 9. The suit claims that the company's president and owner, Roberta Gentile, said the firing was in the "best interest of the company."

The lawsuit said that Gentile engaged Q-Mark employees in conversations aimed at discovering their political affiliations and repeatedly disparaged Obama supporters.

Kunkle started as a temporary worker with the small company in April and became full-time in May, according to the lawsuit. The lawsuit said that she performed her duties "efficiently and effectively," and never received any disciplinary action or negative performance evaluations.

Defense attorneys have until mid-March to respond to the lawsuit.

Seems fishy, but probably won't stand up in court. Employers always win. The law is set up to protect them and not employees.

No logical person would entertain such a thought nor post such a ridiculous ideology. It’s easy to determine that those who think like this voted for this squatter in office who calls himself Commander in Chief. Excluding the sexual tirades there’s little differences between Caligula and Obama. Caligula stood in the towers and threw the treasuries money down upon the people while Obama does it with a pen.

Whiskey Tango F...

we will never know or be able to prove who she cast a vote for... I don't think she voted for Obama, I think she wants more cash and prizes! Well on second thought, now that she is suing over such B.S. I guess this proves she actually did vote Democrat.

Actually, if you pay attention when you vote, you'll see that it's very easy. They record your ballot number in the polling record book. No one in the polling place can discern your vote at the time, but anyone with access to the ballots later can.

Unememployment is higher than when Pres. BHO was first elected. Huh. She should get in line.

I posted this same on 1/31/2013....

Being an employer is becoming more and more difficult. We had a few people that we were withholding for child support and other things as mandated by the court. When we slowed down and we let them go due to lack of work we had the telephone ringing for a month asking if we were hiring, I think a ploy by some legal teams to see if we really let them go because of this or maybe they just wanted off to receive unemployment. Then it became worse, we were subpoenaed to testify in court that we had laid them off for a reason! When I sent a representative they sat for a number of hours and nothing took place but they were supposed to come back. In another case we were subpoenaed to testify in Cuyahoga County for the same thing. In both cases we ended up turning it over to our legal people and in the end it cost over $2,500.00 to lay off these people because we were slow. God, maybe I should have filed for something, there must be some refund for the employer, oh yea, maybe just buy from China and eliminate the employee!

Thanks. My spouse has a great discrimination suit story, where the "piece of work" accuser never even showed up for the hearing. The accuser had expected her co. to "roll over" and not fight the charge.

The accuser later went to work for the govt. and caused her office all kinds of problems. My spouse complained to her superior and got her fired.

IMO, someday, the unemployment office will just phone you and tell you that they're sending you over a new employee and to put them to work.

Ol' Soviet Union joke: They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work.

She is the one that wanted change, she should be the first to have to take ownership for the changes she wanted and asked for. Sadly, the rest of us cannot sue for some fast cash because a number of Ohians either voted numerous times, or voted out of ignorance.

By the way, if you work for a defense contractor and you want to keep your job, why would you vote for Obama?

I talked with a couple guys from a company called Tekran out of Tennessee. They make mercury monitors to emission sources (industrial chimneys). They were all voting for Obama only because they knew that he would mutliply their business by the 100's, even though mercury emission monitoring is about as accurate as a blind man with a bow and arrow. Money is money, and this lady bet on the wrong number for her job. Is that the reason she lost the job? Probably not, but in the whole scheme of things, she is feeling the effects of what she wanted.

4shizzle actually I do think a few democrats must have also lied

“The community of nations may see more and more of the very kind of threat Iraq poses now: a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists. If we fail to respond today, Saddam and all those who would follow in his footsteps will be emboldened tomorrow.” — Bill Clinton in 1998

“In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members, though there is apparently no evidence of his involvement in the terrible events of September 11, 2001. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons. Should he succeed in that endeavor, he could alter the political and security landscape of the Middle East, which as we know all too well affects American security.” — Hillary Clinton, October 10, 2002

“Iraq is not the only nation in the world to possess weapons of mass destruction, but it is the only nation with a leader who has used them against his own people.” — Tom Daschle in 1998

“I share the administration’s goals in dealing with Iraq and its weapons of mass destruction.” — Dick Gephardt in September of 2002

“Iraq does pose a serious threat to the stability of the Persian Gulf and we should organize an international coalition to eliminate his access to weapons of mass destruction. Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to completely deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.” — Al Gore, 2002

“There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein’s regime is a serious danger, that he is a tyrant, and that his pursuit of lethal weapons of mass destruction cannot be tolerated. He must be disarmed.” — Ted Kennedy, Sept 27, 2002

“I will be voting to give the president of the United States the authority to use force – if necessary – to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.” — John F. Kerry, Oct 2002

As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, I am keenly aware that the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons is an issue of grave importance to all nations. Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.” — Nancy Pelosi, December 16, 1998

“Even today, Iraq is not nearly disarmed. Based on highly credible intelligence, UNSCOM [the U.N. weapons inspectors] suspects that Iraq still has biological agents like anthrax, botulinum toxin, and clostridium perfringens in sufficient quantity to fill several dozen bombs and ballistic missile warheads, as well as the means to continue manufacturing these deadly agents. Iraq probably retains several tons of the highly toxic VX substance, as well as sarin nerve gas and mustard gas. This agent is stored in artillery shells, bombs, and ballistic missile warheads. And Iraq retains significant dual-use industrial infrastructure that can be used to rapidly reconstitute large-scale chemical weapons production.” — Ex-Un Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter in 1998

You wouldn't be referring to the tons of WMDs that we found while we were over there? You know, the ones that the media refused to report on despite having reporters embedded with the military units that found them? Hundreds of tons of mustard gas, chemicals to make nerve gas, and the missile components to mount them were found in various locations in Iraq, but were not reported on.

I’m surprised the liberals haven’t made charges of discrimination when employers determine that the applicant can’t perform the job. Next they will charge potential employers with discrimination for not sending the applicant to college to learn the required skills they need! There’s no end to ridiculous claims by the 21st century American socialists whose chant are ‘HOPE’ and ‘FORWARD’. I guess the HOPE part is the destruction of American to gain personally on the backs and work of others and the FORWARD is like a Bull in a china store.

This case will clearly standup in court, and she will win a big reward... ALL OVER THE WRIGHT-PATT AIR FORCE BASE DEF-CONTRACTOR offices it was well known that the axe would fall on those who were against obama... It even goes as high as the WHITE HOUSE, where Obamas people demanded to KNOW WHICH FIRMS WHO HELD DEF-CONTRACTS WERE REPUBLICAN OR DEMs... I know, because our firm is located at WPAFB and we were warned we would lose future contracts if Obama was reelected and we did not support "their" mission...!!!

wiredmama222

You were warned by whom may I ask?

KnuckleDragger

Ahh yes, more BS. I spent a better part of a decade working at Wright-Patt. This kind of crap usually came from workers and not from the management. For the record though, these people will lose their jobs. Just go to the Dayton Daily News website and read about the affect the furloughs will have on WPAFB. So the court is going to find in her favor because the truth was told? The company she works for will likely be laying off its whole workforce in the next two weeks. If that happens, she is gonna have a hard time proving she was singled out. Even if she was, it makes no difference. Ohio is an at will employment state. You can let someone go for any reason, or no reason aside from the few federally protected classes. Last time I checked, there is no protection of Obama voters listed there.

Situations like this make me glad I don't work or vote.

Instead of trying to figure out how to correct the mistakes made by the republican party and why they lost, they will spend the next four years COMPLAINING that they lost. It seems that none of them can move on. But that is exactly the reason the republicans lost. Holding on to the past so long made them loose touch with the present. It showed up in votes. Even those at the top of the Republican pyramid have figured that one out.

Wow Mikle really! She would deny her parents and herself the chance to attend her own graduation because the person whom holds the highest office in the land may speak at the commencement! Sounds like she didn't get much of an education.....also better check that story to see if there is any validity to a sitting president scheduled to speak. If so it would be a great honor for those students.

Tell me, Big Dog, would YOU attend an event where protest was inappropriate (it's a graduation ceremony, after all) with a keynote speaker that was a man or a woman you loathed? I don't care HOW famous somebody is, I wouldn't be inclined to sit through their nonsense if I truly felt it was nonsense (or worse). Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'll bet pretty much whatever you like that you wouldn't either!

Actually, I lost respect for the office over issues involving WHITE men! Or do you now claim that Nixon was "not a crook," Ford wasn't clumsy (on many levels), Carter wasn't hopelessly inept (nice guy, but truly unqualified), Clinton wasn't a sexual predator, Bush 1 wasn't a liar, or Bush 2 wasn't a liar and more?

As for black men and the presidency, where were you twenty years ago when a black man was running for the office? I very seriously considered voting for that black man! In 2012, I ALSO would have liked to vote for a black man because he was eminently qualified, but I couldn't because someone else won the nomination. My disdain for the presidency goes directly toward my disdain for much of today's politics; my disgust with Barack Obama is related to his nightmare vision for the country, not his skin color.

Now answer me THIS, Big Dog: Isn't it JUST as racist to vote FOR somebody based on skin color as it is to vote AGAINST somebody for that reason? And, if so, doesn't that put that label on a whole lot of people in recent years? It may not be true for you personally, but any number of news stories featured comments by people, black and white alike, who were so enamored with voting for a black man that everything else was put aside. That's just as ignorant and shameful as the reverse, you know...

@mikel..it isn't brainwashing to sit through a commencement where the President (even if it isn't one you voted for) might speak. In fact, I doubt that any president would speak about politics at ANY graduation ceremony, but more about the future. He is, in fact, a very good speaker. So to miss your own graduation for such a simple thing as a political belief isn't a sign of being brainwashed "against" something but more like being brainwashed "for" it. And for all the wrong reasons. I feel sorry for her.

The Kleptocrats in Washington have succeeded. In this forum we are fighting amongst ourselves (and everywhere else for that matter). Everything coming out of DC is political theater and artifice. It's sleight of hand, the D's and R's don't give one crap about any of us. All they care about is securing their power base. Big Dog you can worship Obama as the Messiah, those on the right can worship who ever is the flavor of the month, but until we get serious and have an adult conversation about the direction of this country nothing will be accomplished. Fact: We are currently spending 1 trillion dollars more than we take in; it isn't going to be easy, but we must find a way to bring this down. Fact: If this issue is not dealt with by 2045, 100% of the US budget will be spent on interest of the national debt and there will be no money for education, defense, agriculture, transportation, social security, medicaid, medicare and all of the other services we enjoy. I don't want "hope and change" or "mission accomplished." I want leadership that will tell me the truth, even if it is not what I want to hear. We as a nation have to grow up, the system is not working and to continue on this path will lead to the destruction of our nation.

wiredmama222

@Fromthe419...and what, exactly, is the republican held congress doing to help UNSTALL this country that they have held captive for almost 8 years now? Absolutely nothing. I see it certainly did not stop them from forcing a few little lines into the last agreement so money could be given to a special interest group, now did it?

You want to be told the truth, but the truth is that NONE of the people running Washington are going to tell any of us the truth, No matter what their political affiliation! Now that IS the truth. They have way to much to lose. And it makes me sick. Right or left, republican or democrat: these people have held us all hostage for way to long now.

The more government we have crawling down our throats, the worse it gets. How much do you think the wars that Bush started has cost this country? When it stops, how much will we save?

How much money do you think we waste sending funds to other countries....money we BORROWED? Have you ever looked it up? My husband has. Its frightening. You cannot imagine the billions this country has aided and will never get back. Why? Each of those countries at one time or another has turned on us and still is.

How many more times is this country going to stand up for Isreal (sp) and why? We have NO business being involved in any of the goings on in the middle east, but oil. Yet we have more than enough right here at home. Why do we even get involved? We shouldn't.

You want a "grown up" discussion on where this country is headed....straight down the pipeline. It began in the Bush era and it keeps on going. Oh, now tell me that it isn't the Republican's that started it. Yes, it is, and the Democrats who came after. This country has been teetering since Clinton.

We have no recourse because the boys and girls in Washington do not listen nor do they care about any of us out here. You think they do? You need to re think that position. Write a congressman or two, like I have. Then tell me that. Call a couple like i have....then tell me that.

The only way this country will survive is when this country is lead by someone from NEITHER party who is smart enough to make it work. When we stop sending the same people back to congress over and over again and then whine about the way things go.

If you don't vote, don't whine. If you do vote and it didn't go your way, live with it until the next vote. If that doesn't suit you...run for office.

The truth is, it will take a revolt to get this country on track again and I am scared to death that is exactly what is coming. Not this year, maybe not next....but it is brewing. And when it does, we won't have a country to worry about because that is when our enemies will take us over anyway. Probably China.

Apparently, 2nd Opinion is having difficulty coming to terms with the realization that a majority of Americans found Obama to be a better choice than anything the Republicans had to offer in 2008 and in 2012. The reality, of course, is that Obama is a huge improvement over his predecessor in every way. Name calling and regurgitating the same tired Fox News talking points only serves to paint him as just another angry right wingnut who can't figure out just how his point of view became a decided minority.
