Cox Statement On Charges Filed In Wayne County Canvasser’s Case

LANSING, Mich., December 24, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox, regarding the charges being filed against those who threatened Republican Wayne County Canvasser Monica Palmer and her young daughter.

“I am disgusted by the graphic threats sent to Monica Palmer and her young daughter, over her job as a canvasser in Wayne County. These threats featured horrific images and descriptions depicting both rape and murder. This type of behavior is unacceptable in our society, and I am shocked and appalled. I am calling for our state’s top Democrats, including Governor Whitmer, to make clear that this will not be tolerated and that whoever takes part in these types of actions will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
