Reports of anonymous letters threatening to burn down the homes of Trump supporters are surfacing in Kansas and in New Hampshire.
Radio host Todd Starnes reported that “someone is targeting Trump supporters in the suburbs surrounding Kansas City.” Anonymous letters threatening to set fire to their homes should Trump not concede the election have been left with a number of residents.
An image of the letter was posted on social media by Matt Schlapp of the American Conservative Union.
The exact same letter was delivered to pro-Trump residents in Milford and Brookline, New Hampshire.
Kelly, who asked to go by her first name alone, received one of these letters. "This is my home," Kelly said. "You're not supposed to threaten my home. I'm very worried in the sense that this is going on in my town."
The police are investigating in both NH towns and have contacted the U.S. Postal Service and the state Attorney General’s office.
"I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat," said Brookline Police Chief Bill Quigley, as whoever sent the letters could face serious charges.
"Not only with us, with criminal threatening," Quigley said. "It's on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level."
Anyone who receives threatening mail should keep the letter and immediately report it to the police.
