Colorado candidate gets death threat after questioning Sandy Hook massacre

By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) – A candidate for a county commission seat in Colorado said on Friday he received a death threat after questioning whether the 2012 school shooting that killed 20 children in Connecticut was a hoax. Thomas Ready, a Republican candidate for commissioner of Pueblo County, made the comments during a debate this week with his opponent, Democratic incumbent Sal Pace. A video of the exchange was posted online by the Pueblo Chieftain newspaper. Twenty school children and six adults were killed in the Dec. 2012 shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
