We have received multiple phone calls from local residents regarding threatening emails received by democratic voters allegedly from the “Proud Boys.”

These emails appear to have been sent in an attempt to intimidate voters. Residents are advised not to click on the link included in the email or respond to the email.

This has been an issue throughout the State of Florida and the FBI is actively investigating.

If you receive an email like this, the FBI has requested that reports be made directly to their Threat Tips Operations Center by calling 1-813-253-1000 and selecting option #3.

UPDATE: John Ratcliffe, the Director of National Intelligence, announced that Iran was responsible for the voter intimidation emails received by local residents and voters throughout Florida.
