A Utah delegate is making some really strong claims against Trump supporters at the RNC convention:
A Utah delegate was reportedly threatened inside a bathroom at Quicken Loans Arena during the Republican National Convention Monday.
According to NBC, Utah delegate Kera Birkeland was on the floor during the Rules vote as one of the delegates calling for a roll call vote.
Birkeland reportedly went to the women’s restroom and when she emerged from a stall, a group of Trump supporters surrounded her and threatened to kill her, urging her to leave the party and the state.
This is pretty disgusting, if true.
UT del. Kera Birkeland, one of the group wanting a roll call vote, tells NBC News she was threatened by Trump supporters in an RNC bathroom.

Birkeland is 33 years old, a Mormon, and a Cruz delegate.
This shouldn’t be terribly surprising. Trump’s political operative Roger Stone was literally encouraging Trump supporters to confront delegates at the convention, and said he was going to pass out their hotel room numbers to his fascist little minions. Trump himself has riled up his dim-wit followers by repeatedly telling them that the “system was rigged,” challenging Black Lives Matter thugs to show up at his conventions, and calling on his followers to attack detractors. But I guess that’s all one big coincidence.
