Man badly beaten in Shreveport for wearing Obama t-shirt

Via my good friend Versha, I found out a very great member of the Shreveport for Obama team, Kaylon Johnson was involved in a horrific beating this Saturday:

On Saturday night at a gas station in Shreveport, he was accosted by two white males who were yelling racial slurs, incensed by the Obama bumper stickers on Kaylon's car and the Obama t-shirt Kaylon was wearing. He waved them off, but when he came out of the gas station, they jumped on him.

Kaylon was badly beaten and has sustained several head injuries. He will have surgery on Friday to repair a broken eye socket, broken nose, and torn tear duct.
