An alleged Cambridge resident threatened to stage protests outside the house of state Rep. Michael Connolly (D-Somerville, Cambridge) and then a minute later posted a photo of a rifle and told him to change his mind in replies on Sunday to a post Connolly wrote urging Gov. Baker to keep stay-at-home regulations in place.
The Globe reports Connolly has talked to Cambridge Police about the threat from an account whose only other posts are equally ammosexual comments about Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and an image of a Cuban flag. Connolly's posting and the message also appeared on the timeline of state Rep. Nika Elugardo (D-Jamaica Plain), who had also called on Baker to keep restrictions in place.
This morning, Connolly wrote:
This has been an unfortunate and sad situation. I am doing okay and plan to continue advocating for all of our Cambridge and Somerville constituents. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to offer support.
