GRAND CHUTE, Wis.- An elderly woman who spit on a Mitt Romney supporter at a political event last year will not face criminal charges.

The August event in Grand Chute, Wisconsin, was part of a statewide "Wisconsin Women for Mitt" tour

The 83 year old woman is shown on video interrupting Republican state Sen. Alberta Darling to ask about the GOP's opposition to Planned Parenthood.

A woman standing nearby says in a loud voice, "Wait until she's done. Zip it. Zip it."  That's when the video shows the elderly woman spitting on her.

According to WLUK-TV report shows a Green Lake County prosecutor recommended a $277 fine but no charges.
