The KKK has allegedly threatened a gay couple—one of whom is running for office—with hate-filled letters that landed on their door. The couple, from Cape Coral, Florida, said they first received a letter of their front door from a member of the Ku Klus Knights (a Florida division of the KKK). James Schneider said his partner found a letter. “I kind of dropped it,” said Schneider. “I didn’t know what to do with that. I was spooked by it immediately. It really shakes you to the core.”
The note read: “We know where you live [expletive]. We are going to win. Quit now…When you girls least expect it, We will be here for a nice visit.”
“I am going to stay in the campaign,” Schneider said. “I almost quit which would’ve meant they won. I think I’m the appropriate candidate for the position.”
He has also received threats and bigotry on social media. “Every time I see one of these things on Facebook, the pile-ons from people who don’t realize that their cyber bullying and saying horrific things and they don’t even know who I am,” Schneider said.
