MOGOP released this statement:
“A supporter of Robin Carnahan’s campaign lashed out this weekend, clearly threatening a Missouri Republican Party staff member with physical harm outside of a Kansas City area Democratic office,” said Lloyd Smith, Executive Director of the Missouri Republican. “Perhaps Carnahan’s campaign is frustrated that she is down in polls and the issues she supports are incredibly unpopular. Regardless of the reason, there is absolutely no excuse for threats or intimidation from a campaign or its supporters—particularly an elected official like the mayor pro tem of Kansas City. Robin Carnahan should immediately take steps to educate her closest supporters about appropriate behavior.”
Keep it classy, libs.
