As you know, Rep. Steve Scalise was shot on Wednesday morning in Virginia while practicing for a congressional baseball game.
Yesterday he underwent a third procedure after suffering the severe injuries, and he is expected to need more operations.
It appears that this shooting, by an anti-Trumper, has caused other radical leftists to get in the same mindset and threaten to kill more Republicans.
Shortly after the shooting Claudia Tenney, a Republican lawmaker received and email saying “one down, 216 to go” typed into the subject line, with the email stating, “Did you NOT expect this? When you take away ordinary peoples very lives in order to pay off the wealthiest among us, your own lives are forfeit. Certainly, your souls and morality were lost long before. Good riddance.” according to Allen West.
She wasn’t, however, the only Republican to receive a threat. According to a report by Right Scoop “Karen Handel, who is running for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, says a package and letters were delivered to her home and her neighbor’s home with a suspicious powdery substance.”
Handel released a statement on the package saying “This afternoon we had some suspicious packages delivered to our house and to our neighbors. The packages contained threatening letters and a suspicious substance. The police were quickly notified and street is now being blocked off. We will continue to coordinate with law enforcement as necessary.”
One of her neighbors who also received the note shared the picture below which has been edited due to strong language:
The FBI investigation is still ongoing as of this writing.
Suspiciously, the shooter of the Virginia incident, James Hodgkinson, had also attacked Handel on social media as well as other Republicans. Is there a collaboration among a group of crazies?
Hopefully, the FBI will be able to get to the bottom of this quickly. Tensions are running high since the Virginia shootings and it’s spreading all over the country.
