Leftwing civility: Democratic Congressman Peter Stark (D-California) reportedly threatened the family and livelihood of another California politician after learning that politician was endorsing Stark’s primary opponent.

He asked me if I was mentally well.” The furious [Stark] then added, “Maybe I should send a social worker to your house. Your kids need to be safe. You’re not well,” a horrified Torrico recalled.
