Candidate Claims Threats Made
WATERLOO, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- An Iowa State Representative running for Congress says she's receiving threats after a post on a Facebook page. State Rep. Anesa Kajtazovic says her personal cell phone number and home address were posted on the Iowa Gun Owners group page last week.
The post shows an image of a letter which Kajtazovic reportedly refused delivery of from the group. The image shows her address and the group posted her cell phone number with the image.
"My voting record on gun issues is public information." Said Rep. Kajtazovic. "I'm adamantly opposed to Stand Your Ground laws, and I've always advocated for universal background checks. Publishing my home address was not right, but no measure of intimidation will cause me to change my views on these important issues."
CBS 2 News spoke with Aaron Dorr of the Iowa Gun Owners group Monday morning. Dorr says they did not put out any information that wasn't already public knowledge. He says the letter contained a survey from the group they sent to all candidates. Dorr says her refusal of the survey is an example of Kajtazovic "running away" from her record on gun legislation.
Rep. Kajtazovic is currently running for Iowa's 1st Congressional District, a seat currently held by fellow Democrat Bruce Braley.
