Several North Carolina Politicians Receive Threatening Letters

Several North Carolina politicians have reportedly received identical threatening and racist letters, according to law enforcement officials.

The mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, and several other area African American lawmakers in the area each received a letter that stated they should be “tarred and feathered and run out of town (my town) on a rail.” The letters, which were all mailed within days of each other, were sent to the offices of Mayor Vi Lyles, six members of the city council and five members of the county commission, officials said.

All of the letters were mailed to African American lawmakers, except for one, which was sent to Councilwoman Dimple Ajmera, who is an immigrant from India who moved here as a teenager.
