I received a robo call attacking Shelby Rognstad, candidate for mayor of Sandpoint.
This call is a new low in bottom feeding. It deals in fear, hatred, ignorance and prejudice. It scapegoats low-income people and African-Americans. Besides being racist, it is homophobic and denigrates women.
I encourage this newspaper to continue its investigation into finding out who is behind these calls.
I also hope that other leaders and citizens in our community speak out to condemn the vile nature of this kind of message. Our candidates for office do not need this, nor does Sandpoint.
