The Huffington Post and several other sites made a big fuss over Beth Fukumoto getting a hate letter. Beth was a Republican in Hawaii but resigned in March 2017 and is in the process of switching parties. Here's more about the switch.
Reading the hate letter she received, one wonders: Doesn't this person have a computer? Why is someone in California compelled to write to a minor entity from Hawaii? What's with the 40-year-old-stamps? And what's with the lack of periods? Who writes like that anyway?
It seems that the university Beth attended (and got an English degree) is keen on the grammar. Why? I have no idea. What a coincidence. This hate-mongering Trump supporter and her went to the same university, and so on. Thomas Wictor lists a bunch of reasons why it is yet another fake 'Trump hate crime' carried out by the liberal-left.
But to be fair, Beth wasn't originally claiming it was connected to Charlottesville:
Her response is reported here and also makes no mention of that:
She does say that given the events she's more upset by it, but that hardly makes it connected to Virginia's events.
If real? The letter's writer should face what charges? Is there a threat here? IDK.
If fake? Beth should immediately be removed from office and face charges herself. Or the person who wrote it should at the very least. Getting the police and FBI to waste time and resources on a fake hate-letter is a serious crime, I think we can all agree.
