CORNING — Congressman Tom Reed is raising concerns about a threat made at his family home in Corning after a dead animal with a family member’s name on it was found with a brick on his property.
“Today, my family and I were threatened at our home in Corning,” Reed said in a statement. “The cowards used a dead animal and a brick with a family member’s name on it to try to intimidate us. We assure everyone such threats only energize us to stand stronger.”
Reed said local police and federal authorities are investigating “this disgusting attack against my family.”
This comes on the heals of an attack that smashed a storefront window at Reed’s Corning campaign headquarters.
The Corning Police Department declined to comment on the incident or whether they are involved in the investigation.
