Robocall claims Texas candidate killed her husband in disgusting smear on eve of Election Day


A robocall by Democrats used those convenient ‘confidential sources’ to claim their opponent Susan Wright murdered her husband. Wright is the wife of deceased U.S. Congressman Ron Wright who died in February. Today is election day to fill Wright’s seat and she is running as a Republican, endorsed by President Donald J. Trump.

The robocall claims Susan Wright confided in a nurse at the hospital that she had purposefully contracted the coronavirus in order to kill her immunodeficient husband in order to collect a $1,000,000 life insurance policy. The call eluded that Wright committed pre-meditated murder.

“This is illegal, immoral, and wrong. There’s not a sewer too deep that some politicians won’t plumb. Imagine it: someone is attacking my late husband, the love of my life, a man who gave me such joy in life,” Wright said in a statement.

Now, Wright is asking the FBI to investigate the attack.
