The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:
“It has gotten ridiculous — from death threats, (claims of) bribes from China, the social media posts that my children are getting,” Kemp said. “We have the ‘no crying in politics rule’ in the Kemp house. But this is stuff that, if I said it, I would be taken to the woodshed and would never see the light of day.”
The Republican singled out the invective targeting his daughter Lucy, who has received hate-filled messages about inane false conspiracies about the death of her longtime boyfriend, Harrison Deal, who was killed in a traffic accident this month in Savannah.
Read the full article. As I’ve previously reported, QAnon nutbags are claiming that Deal was killed, possibly with a guided missile, because he was about to expose voter fraud in Georgia.
.@GovKemp is fed up with the unrelenting attacks from conspiracy theorists calling on him to overturn President-elect Biden’s victory in Georgia. But he’s even more enraged that some of those peddlers are targeting his wife and three daughters. #gapol https://t.co/I9V747gXeT

Kemp: “I can assure you I can handle myself. And if they’re brave enough to come out from underneath that keyboard or behind it, we can have a little conversation if they would like to.” #gapol https://t.co/DKsDY2sSRG
