- Letter sent to Karen Handel and her neighbors:
“Your neighbor Karen Handel is a dirty fascist cunt but I’m sure you already knew that,” the letter says, according to a picture. “Take a whiff of the powder and join her in the hospital you Bourgeoisie motherfuckers.”
“RESIST THE FASCIST TAKEOVER!!!!,” it says. ” STRING UP THE COLLABORATORS!”
Republican candidate for Congress Karen Handel received a suspicious package with white powder in the mail on Thursday. Her neighbors also received vulgar, threatening letters.
According to WSBTV , at least five homes received an envelope with a “white powdery substance” in it. The FBI was called in to take the lead on the investigation as police say Roxburg Drive off Old Alabama Road was shut down for several hours while crews investigated.
Handel is running for Congress in the Georgia District 6 race against out-of-district Democrat Jon Ossoff. Election will be on Tuesday.
Handel was also targeted on facebook by shooter James Hodgkinson who was labeled by him as a “Republican bitch.”
“Republican Bitch Wants People to Work for Slave Wages, when a Livable Wage is the Only Way to Go! Vote Blue, It’s Right for You!” James Hodgkinson wrote on Facebook.
Handel responded to the information about Hodgkinson by saying that it is time to “work together in a civil and productive way.”
“I am aware that the suspect recently made vile comments about me on social media,” Handel said in her statement. “It also appears that the suspect targeted members of Congress specifically because he disagreed with their views.”
