Congressional candidate Gabbard files police report after receiving death threats

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Congressional candidate Tulsi Gabbard has filed a police report after receiving an anonymous email death threat, according to campaign spokesman Jim McCoy.

McCoy says Gabbard believes it is from the same man who was ordered by a judge last year to stay away from her after a series of bizarre phone calls.

McCoy says the man moved to the mainland, but continued to post negative comments about the former city councilwoman online this past summer.

Police have opened a terroristic threatening case.

The 30-year-old democrat is running against Republican Kawika Crowley in the race for Hawaii's 2nd Congressional District.
