Death threats made to gay Iowa legislator
Advertisements [?]
DES MOINES --- An openly gay member of the Iowa Legislature confirmed Monday he has been the target of a death threat, but declined to talk about details.

Sen. Matt McCoy, D-Des Moines, was seen emerging from a meeting with law enforcement officials at the Capitol late Monday afternoon.

Thats all I can say, Ive been threatened, McCoy said when asked what the meeting was about. He confirmed it was a death threat.

The alleged incident follows an Iowa Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage in Iowa.

I guess the wages of bigotry is death threats. This is disgusting enough but the first comment at the link is some dumbass keyboard Kommando saying that because he's a Democrat, he's lying. :puke:
