On Sunday, Modine’s campaign spokesman Adam Nelson apologized for retweeting an apparent death threat against Carteris, both on his Twitter account and that of Modine’s Membership First party.
“We sincerely apologize for a retweet which was performed in error and is expressly not a shared opinion. The retweet has since been undone,” Nelson wrote. “#MembershipFirst affirmatively advocates only nonviolent protest of any election violations by Ms. Carteris.”
The original tweet, from actress and Modine supporter Daria Rumi, included the message “Let’s get rid of her once and for all! #Gabrielle Carteris” accompanied by a Gif from “Scarface” of Al Pacino wielding a high-powered rifle blowing away a squad of men behind a door.
Let's get rid of her once and for all! #GabrielleCarteris
