Hillary Clinton may be prepping up to pick her vice presidential running mate, which is likely Tim Kaine, but she’s also contending with people who want her to be “hanged for treason.”
A county official in Ohio is apologizing after a newspaper quoted him as saying presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “should be hanging from a tree.”
Licking County Commissioner Duane Flowers read a prepared apology during a meeting Thursday, after The (Newark) Advocate reported on the comment he made during a meeting earlier this week.
Flowers says he made the remark during a casual conversation with two other officials and a reporter from The Advocate that he thought was off the record. Flowers says he “will never again have a casual conversation with a reporter.”
This comes after Michael Folk, a West Virginian Republican legislator who’s also a United Airlines pilot, posted a tweet last Friday night saying, “Hillary Clinton, you should be tried for treason, murder, and crimes against the US Constitution … then hung on the Mall in Washington, DC.”
