'Disgusting' robocall accuses Texas candidate Wright of causing husband's death

Source: Politico

Texas Republican congressional candidate Susan Wright is seeking help from federal law enforcement the day before her special election, after supporters reported receiving robocalls that accused her of being responsible for the death of her late husband.

Wright’s campaign reached out to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice on Friday after discovering robocalls baselessly alleging that she had “murdered” her husband, the late GOP Rep. Ron Wright. Wright is running in the special election to succeed Wright, who passed away in February after being diagnosed with coronavirus.

Wright aides say they found out about the robocalls on Friday morning, a day before Saturday's crowded all-party primary.

"This is illegal, immoral, and wrong. There’s not a sewer too deep that some politicians won’t plumb," Wright said in a statement.

2. How many of her "supporters" heard these robocalls and are there any recordings of

them?

Did anyone try to find out the phone of origin, i.e., dial *69?

How is she doing with her campaign? Primary opponents? Polls?

3. She's leading.

It's a nonpartisan jungle primary that will likely go to a runoff between Wright and a Dem, with Wright winning handily in the runoff.

4. The facts

23 people are running in the TX-06 Special Election May 1st. Republicans & Democrats. Wright(R) & Sanchez(D) are polling out front. Her husband did die of Covid 19. He also had lung cancer. She did not "murder" him. There is a Susan Wright who was paroled in 2020 after being convicted of murdering her husband. Maybe someone hoped the name confusion would 'work'. I hope they catch the guilty party(ies).
