|Mia Love with her husband and kids|
I guess a few Utah rednecks don't like that she might actually represent them. From the Daily Mail (UK), about the conservative Republican Congressional candidate: "Republican congressional candidate Mayor Mia Love, a star of the party's recent convention, has been sent a 'disturbing' package that included a picture of her and her husband with a hooded Ku Klux Klan figure. The package arrived at her mayoral office in Saratoga Springs, Utah as an internal poll released by her campaign purportedly showed her surging into a 15-point lead over her Democratic opponent - an apparent dramatic turnaround after a public poll in June found her trailing by the same margin. Mark Christensen, city manager of Saratoga Springs, described the contents of the thick envelope to the Deseret News as 'pretty creepy stuff' and 'disturbing' and 'pretty creepy stuff'."
The article continues: "The package, which also included fliers and pages printed from the Internet, has been handed over to the Saratoga Springs police. Christensen said the city had received others' material aimed at Love but nothing like the recent package, which arrived on Tuesday. Gary Hicken, the city's police chief, told the Deseret News that he had assigned an officer to investigate. 'I can say it's racial in nature but I can't tell you it's criminal in nature.'"
More: "Reacting to the package, Love said: '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.' Love said she believed she had become a target because she posed a political threat to the Obama administration and were designed to divert and intimidate her. 'If there is a physical threat, I'm sure they will let me know about it. But I want [the police] to be aware and handle that.'"
