No good deed goes unpunished, and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ailing.) is learning that the hard way.
The Republican congressman is serving on the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and is getting all kinds of abuse from revolt supporters ― including threats to his family.
“Threats of violence over politics [have] increased heavily in the previous few years. However the darkness has reached recent lows,” Kinzinger tweeted. “My recent interns made this compilation of recent calls they’ve received while serving in my DC office.”
The video appears below and features very graphic and disturbing statements.
One caller left a message telling the congressman: “We all know who your loved ones is, and we’re going to get you, get you, little cocksucker, you cocksucking little bastard, gonna get your wife, gonna get your kids.”
One other message got here from a one that hoped for Kinzinger’s quick demise.
“I assume I can’t say an entire lot more aside from I hope you naturally die as quickly as fucking possible, you fucking piece of shit.”
Then there’s the caller who calls Kinzinger a “backstabbing son of a bitch” and guarantees that he’ll “get stomped down very quickly.”
Many Twitter users were disturbed by the messages Kinzinger shared.
