Mia Love, Republican Mayor, Receives KKK Photos, Says She Was Targeted Because She’s a Threat to Obama Administration
Republican Mayor and Congressional candidate Mia Love received an envelope at her office in Saratoga Springs, Utah, which contained some pretty nasty content.
According to the Deseret News, the letter contained a photo showing Love, her husband, who is white, a hooded Klu Klux Klan member, and pictures of aborted fetuses.
“I couldn’t tell if it was threatening or anything. It kind of shocked me, what I saw,” said City Manager Mark Christensen.
Love, who is in a heated campaign against Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson for Utah’s 4th Congressional District, spoke out against the hate mail she received.
“I want you to know, I want everyone to know I am comfortable in my skin. I’m comfortable and proud of my heritage. I’m proud of who I am. I know where I’m going and I know what we need to do to get this country back in order again. There isn’t anything that anyone can send me that will distract me from that so they can bring it,” she said.
Love went on to say that people are targeting her because she ”poses a problem to the policies of the Obama administration.”
“I knew that people would come after me,” Love said. “I knew that people would try to change and distort information so I’m going to focus on things that are really important.”
The more likely scenario here is that someone who hasn’t been taking their medicine, or an avowed racist, thought sending Love those nasty photos was a good idea. I seriously doubt that there is a plan afoot to distract Love with photos of aborted fetuses because she is a threat to the Obama administration.
There have also been cases of liberal Congresspeople receiving racist faxes and hate mail, so if Mia Love wins, this is something she might want to get used to.
