Georgia GOP Candidate Receives Threat

Jun 16, 2017

On June 20th there will be a special Congressional election in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District for the House of Representatives seat vacated by the appointment of Tom Price to be the HHS secretary in the Trump administration. The Republican candidate Karen Handel is in a virtual tie with her Democrat opponent Jon Ossoff despite the fact that Hollywood democrats and others have poured millions into his campaign.

Now, there is a new wrinkle in the campaign because shortly after the attempted assassination of Congressional Republicans in Virginia; Handel received a threatening letter with a suspicious substance in it at her home, and several of her neighbors also received threatening letters with the same or similar substance. This appears to be a dangerous escalation of the far left hate campaign since it now includes candidates for Congress and even potential voters.
