Rep. Candice Miller
The editorial that sparked the threat criticized U.S. Rep. Candice Miller, R-Harrison Township, for continuing to participate in a Nov. 5 Capitol rally after it turned nasty. The rally was organized by Rep. Michele Bachmann to speak out against the government's proposed health care legislation.
