Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) reportedly did not return to Washington this week due to threats she's received since her comments about President Trump's call to the widow of a fallen soldier.
“She’s home,” Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) told the Miami Herald.
“I have not spoken with her about it, but I’ve heard that she’s received substantial death threats and I think she is doing everything she can to ratchet down and let some of us, including me, take over.”
The last time Wilson voted was on Oct. 12.
A source told the newspaper that "nothing else would keep her from voting," adding that there are investigations into the threats she has faced.
Apparently these ramped up after General Kelly falsely accused Wilson of grandstanding during the dedication of an FBI building, and then attempted to shame her for overhearing a phone call that was broadcast on speaker phone while she was in the car on the way to retrieve the body of Sgt. La David Johnson.
So we now live in a country where the White House Chief of Staff activates the Right Wing flying monkeys to go after critics of his boss.
Of course Rep. Wilson is also a black woman so she was probably already seen as a vulnerable target.
