Illinois Democrat Rep. Stephanie Kifowit is getting calls to resign for her divisive violent remarks she made in her floor speech this week. Kifowit called for the death of a Republican representative Peter Breen and his family.
Kifowit stated, “I would like to make him a broth of Legionella and pump it into the water system of his loved ones so that they can be infected, they can be mistreated, they can sit and suffer by getting aspirin instead of being properly treated and ultimately die.”
appalled Republican Rep. Jeanne Ives fired back at Kifowit and her fellow Democrats for their insane support in calling for the death of Republicans and their family members.
Ives stated, “How dare you concoct up some sort of story about brewing up some batch of Legionella and having him feed it to his family. How dare you take the discussion and the debate about a very serious bill that has a huge cost consequence on both sides, both for the victim and the state taxpayers. How dare you take an honest debate about an issue and then wish death on my colleague Peter Breen, his wife and his two adopted kids.”
In response, Republican Rep. Jeanne Ives blasted Democrat Kifowit: "How dare you concoct up some sort of story about brewing up some batch of Legionella and having him feed it to his family…How dare you…wish death on my colleague Peter Breen, his wife, and his 2 adopted kids" pic.twitter.com/bhv5xblep9

Peter Breen responded to the press, “She launched her attack against me and my family, and really, it was shock. It was out of left field. Had Rep. Kisowit made those statements in the parking lot, or left a message on an answering machine in my office, she would be in custody.”
It is being reported Stephanie Kisowit is receiving many calls to resign from her position due to her comments wishing death upon Republicans and their families.
