The Commercial Appeal is reporting that tonight Congressman Steve Cohen received threats on his campaign website:
U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen’s office will contact federal law enforcement authorities about a threat the campaign received through its Web site Monday night, a Cohen spokesman said.
What did it say?
Laced with expletives, the e-mail said, in part, “… If our tea parties had hoods, we would burn your ass on a cross on the White House front lawn.”
It is one thing to protest the Congressman, as was done earlier today at his office, but this is too much. Law enforcement needs to find out who made this threat and shut this down now. The Tea Party movement is on the verge of becoming the right-wing version of the Weather Underground.
