Racist, homophobic letter sent to Biden backers in Erie, Pa., area

Anne Carney and her husband have been putting political signs in the front yard of their West Seventh Street home in Erie for 25 years.

Never have they received anything like the letter that landed in their mailbox Wednesday. The two-page letter — the envelope hand-addressed to “resident” — is anonymous and contains no return address. But whoever sent it knows the Carneys have “Biden/Harris” yard signs in their front yard, in support of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris.

“The sign in your yard is an embarrassment to many of your neighbors even if it doesn’t embarrass you,” the first page of the typed letter ends. “You bring your neighborhood down a notch and advertise your political and moral ignorance. You advertise that you are either low wattage, hard hearted, spiritually lacking or totally unawares. SAD”

Erie County Democratic Party chairman Jim Wertz said at noon Thursday that he was aware of at least five other Democrats who had received the letter in the Erie and Fairview areas.

1. So sad to see this. I was born in Erie

and grew up there. Sounds like there are some QAnon fanatics behind this.

I hope someone points out to the people of Erie that their native son, former governor Tom Ridge, has publicly announced that he will vote for Biden because he believes that Trump is unfit for office.
