As we reported yesterday, the Virginia shooting inspired other unhinged Leftists to issue the threat other Republican lawmakers may be next. Not long after the shooting in Virginia, freshman Republican lawmaker Claudia Tenney, from Utica, New York, received a threatening email with the subject line “one down, 216 to go.”
The email read “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.”
She wasn’t the only one to receive a threat. According to The 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.

Here’s the statement Handel released about the package:
“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.”
Here’s a photo of the letter that got distributed in her neighborhood (WARNING: strong language):

The FBI is investigating the packages sent to Handel and her neighbors. She’s been in the national spotlight recently, thanks to a closely watched special election against Democrat Jon Ossoff, for a House seat in Georgia.
The threat is being taken more seriously given yesterday’s events. Handel, by the way, was one of the many Republicans that yesterday’s shooter had attacked on social media prior to his attack.
Still no word yet on when love is expected to Trump hate.
