A young Chicago leftist was arrested this week after threatening to kill GOP gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey and skin him alive.

Scott Lennox, 21, also called Bailey a racist white person and said he knew where Bailey and his family sleep.

The Epoch Times reported:

A Chicago man has been arrested and charged after authorities say he left threatening voicemails for a Republican gubernatorial candidate.

Scott Lennox, 21, said in one message that he was going “to skin Darren Bailey alive” after killing the candidate’s family, according to a filing from the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office that was obtained by The Epoch Times.

“He better kill himself and if he doesn’t, I am going to kill him,” Lennox said.

Lennox also described Bailey—an Illinois state senator who is running against Democrat Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker—as a racist white person and said he knew where Bailey and his children sleep.

Lennox’s phone number was recorded on the caller id and he admitted to making the calls when officers with the Illinois Secretary of State Police went to his home, according to the filing. However, police declined to arrest him or transport him for further questioning.
