    16-year-old faces threats after challenging Bachmann to a debate - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Several media outlets reported on Myers' challenge. As a result, she said, people have threatened violence against her and threatened to publish her address online, the Courier Post reports. Myers' high school has also reprotedly received inquiries regarding Myers' letter.

    "A lot of them are calling me a whore," Myers said of the online remarks against her. Added her father Wayne Myers: "I personally did not think there would be a reaction like actual stalking and the vitriol that's coming out."

    If she didn't think this would happen, she hasn't been paying attention to the Far Right's methods.

    Joe the plumber comes to mind. Ask obama a simple question and the media attack dogs are found digging through your garbage.

    i cant imagine why anyone would want to threaten a girl. especially for just speaking out. The girl has more guts than most of the Democrats on this board or in Congress.

    Why do people even ask politicians a question anyway? They never answer the question you really ask or in the rare times that they do, they lie.
