Governing: Over the course of her run for the Indiana House, Democrat Amie Neiling has been called "a socialist witch" and "a baby killer." But "partisan smears," she says, don't bother her.
What did disturb her was when her campaign received a text message threatening her life. In response to a message from the campaign last week reminding people about early voting, someone wrote back, "We are working on getting this liberal c**t assassinated."
"When someone wants to kill me -- not just kill me, they used the word assassinated -- that took me aback," Neiling says.
