Calif. Muslim Candidate Receives Death Threat

A Muslim candidate for the Irvine City Council reported receiving a death threat after he had been smeared by a council member’s Islamophobic attacks. The candidate, Todd Gallinger, a convert to Islam, received an anonymous threat in which the caller “read the article…about Todd being a born-again Muslim,” and said, “I want to cut off your head just like all the other Muslims deserve.” The comment came after Council member Stephen Choi questioned if a “born-again Muslim” is fit to represent the residents of Irvine. CAIR is calling for an investigation into the anonymous threats.
