CORNING, N.Y. — An upstate New York congressman stated he and his household have been threatened with a useless animal and a brick bearing a member of the family’s identify at his dwelling Friday.
The brick and the animal have been discovered at Republican Rep. Tom Reed’s home after 10:30 a.m., in accordance with the Corning Police Division, which stated it was working with state police and federal companies to research, according to WIVB-TV.
Neither Reed nor police specified what sort of animal it was or offered different particulars.
“The cowards used a useless animal and a brick with a member of the family’s identify on it to attempt to intimidate us,” Reed stated in a press release launched by his workplace. “We guarantee everybody such threats solely energize us to face stronger.”
Reed represents New York’s twenty third Congressional District, which covers a big swath of the state north of the Pennsylvania border.
He faces Democrat Tracy Mitrano within the Nov. 3 election.
