Linkedin Share

Jay Webber, a GOP candidate for the House of Representatives recently posted a chilling threat that he received from someone that seemed to indicate his children were potentially in danger of being targeted.

Webber is running for New Jersey’s 11 district seat and posted the threat he received on social media.

“You are NOT for the middle class,” the note read. “Be honest.”

“You are for the top 1% and above,” it added. “Be honest.”

“You think tax cuts for top 1% is ok to EXPLODE the debt by 1.5 TRILLION and add to annual deficit is ok??” the note continued.

“What the f*** is wrong with you… you scumbag?” the letter said further on. “You BETTER hope that you don’t win! Or else. How many kids do you have… 7? Unlucky 7.”

“This is what we think of you,” it concluded. “Time to get out of politics!”

“Criticizing a candidate on the issues is part of politics,” said Webber in the tweet. “Threatening my children is not.”

Calling a man a scumbag and threatening his children seems a bit strange doesn’t it? What could be more of a scumbag move than threatening a man’s kids?

“We are thankful for the support of law enforcement as we work to find whoever is behind this gutless act,” Webber added. “We will not be intimidated as we work to make #NJ11 better for everyone.”

His campaign indicated that the note was sent with a campaign sign cut into pieces to Webber’s place of business.

Webber’s Democratic opponent, Mikie Sherrill came out and condemned the threat saying, “This is absolutely appalling. No one who decides to run for public office should feel that, by doing so, they are putting their family in danger.”

“I condemn this in the strongest terms and hope law enforcement determines who was behind this and holds them accountable,” he concluded.

Let’s hope the individual responsible for this heinous threat is found and that the rest of Webber’s campaign goes without any further incidents.
