A Pennsylvania Trump’s campaign lawyer has been placed under official protection after she received threats, according to Wednesday reports.
Philadelphia lawyer Linda Kerns received threats of harm “to the point at which the involvement of police and US Marshals has been necessary to provide for her safety,” court filings said.
It came after Kerns sought legal sanctions against a lawyer from the State Secretary Kathy Boockvar for “abusive voicemail.”
Kerns told the court that she’s been the subject of “continuous harassment in the form of abusive emails, phone calls, physical and economic threats, and even accusations of treason” because she represents the President’s campaign.
Kerns requested to be allowed to quit the case challenging Biden’s win in Pennsylvania.
A similar request was made by the firm of Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur that was granted a withdrawal from the case amid threats.
