The Miami Herald reports:
Congressional Democrats celebrated Rep. Frederica Wilson on Wednesday by wearing stickers adorned with a red cowboy hat and posing for a group picture on the steps of the Capitol. But one notable person was missing: Wilson herself.
A source close to Wilson confirmed that the Miami Democrat was not in Washington this week due to ongoing threats against her after she criticized President Donald Trump’s handling of a conversation with the family of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed during an Oct. 4 ambush in Niger.
One racist threat against Wilson that surfaced on Facebook by a Chicago area man is being investigated by police. “Need ten good men to help carry out a lynching,” the post read. “Must have own horse and saddle. Rope will be provided. This congresswomen [sic] is a disgusting pig. Someone should take their boot to her face.”
