Cynthia Johnson Says Warning in Response to Threatening Phone Message

Among the first of what will likely be a wave of hostile, post-election innuendo and confrontation, Michigan State Rep. Cynthia Johnson was cast into the spotlight for a video she posted on Facebook where she issued “a warning to “you Trumpers” to “be careful [and] walk lightly” because “we ain’t playin’ with you.”
Johnson’s Facebook statement was in response to a phone message she received that was overtly threatening and racist.
Representative Johnson has stoked the ire of Republicans who have pointed to Michigan’s suspect electoral practices in during and after the November 3 election.
Johnson’s threat comes amidst (although reportedly preceded) more overt acts of violence against conservatives in Michigan. The first involved the bombing of a “Trumpers” home, and the second was the attempted murder of a potential Republican poll worker.
Additional video of Representative Johnson has emerged more recently where Johnson directly invoked the Biden-Harris ticket, and that the Democratic presidential ticket should compensate her for her efforts to thwart election challenges.
