Former Republican Congressional Candidate Facing Charges For Sending Herself Death Threats
Karen Davis, a Republican candidate for Congress in 2014 from Lodi, California, faces federal charges for lying investigators about two death threats she sent to herself.
“You know, everybody makes mistakes. I did,” she said.
The first letter included the line, “A close up to your head or to your husband will be final. You make the decision not to run for Congress.”
A second letter read, “If you don’t quit very soon, you won’t be warned. You won’t see it coming. Your family will have to plan a funeral.”
Davis was arrested at her Lodi home following a monthslong investigation she opened when she reported the letters to federal authorities. Investigators say she ultimately failed a polygraph test and admitted writing the letters and sending them herself.
