Dem lawmaker called to resign after saying she’d like to inject poison into GOP rep’s family water so they die

Democrat Stephanie Kifowit, a state lawmaker in Illinois, is being pressured to resign after cavalierly wishing death on the family of her Republican colleague, Peter Breen.

Kifowit and Breen were debating a bill to help families whose loved ones became ill or died following an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease at a state-run home for military veterans, Fox News reported.

Kifowit said of Peter Breen from the floor of the Illinois House of Representatives:

“To the representative from Lombard, 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.”

Kifowit was reacting to a remark Peter Breen had made, suggesting that ambulance-chasing lawyers would try to shake down the government for higher payouts.

“Yes, we know the personal injury lawyers are going to make out like bandits, which they tend to do anytime they come to the General Assembly,” Breen said.

Republicans are concerned about the cost of the plan, which would raise the cap on damages in civil cases to $2 million from $100,000.

The debate concerned a bill meant to help the families of 14 people who died and others who got sick following an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease at the Illinois Veteran Home in Quincy in 2015.

Hours after wishing death on Peter Breen’s loved ones, Stephanie Kifowit claimed her remarks were hypothetical, and not an actual death wish.

Kifowit wrote in a pair of now-deleted tweets:  “I never stated anything to wish his family death. My words were twisted and misrepresented.”

Republican state representative Jeanne Ives slammed Kifowit:

“How dare you? 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 an honest debate about an issue and then wish death on my colleague Peter Breen, his wife and his two adopted kids?”

The Illinois Republican Party took to Twitter to call on Kifowit to resign.

Stephanie Kifowit’s death wish is the latest example in an unending series of violent leftist rhetoric that has been ratcheting up against Republicans.

As BizPac Review reported, Hillary Clinton recently called for civil war and mob violence against Republicans.

Hillary’s calls to mob bullying were followed up by violent rhetoric from Congressman Maxine Waters and former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder, who urged Democrats to harass Republicans.
