(Newser) – A troubled Florida man appears to have chosen death over another four years of President Obama, police say. Officers who had been requested to conduct a welfare check found the body of Henry Hamilton, 64, next to two empty bottles of anxiety and schizophrenia medication in the Key West home he shared with his male partner, the Miami Herald reports. Hamilton, owner of a tanning salon, was stressed about his business and was "very upset about the election results," his partner told police. The words "F*** Obama!" were found scrawled on Hamilton's will.
