HONOLULU (AP) — Police are investigating congressional candidate Tulsi Gabbard's claim that she was the target of a death threat.
Hawaii NewsNow reported Saturday that Gabbard told police she received an anonymous email death threat. Gabbard believes the threat comes from the same man who was ordered by a judge last year to stay away from her after a series of bizarre phone calls.
Gabbard's campaign spokesman Jim McCoy says the man moved to the mainland, but continued to post negative comments about the former city councilwoman online this past summer.
The 30-year-old Democrat is running against Republican Kawika Crowley in the race for Hawaii's 2nd Congressional District.
