Openly-gay GOP presidential candidate Fred Karger was greeted with a less-than-friendly welcome when he began campaigning in Utah this month. As the L.A. Times reports, Karger received a harsh email from the wife of a Republican official.
Nanette Billings, whose husband is Washington County Republican Party Chairman Willie Billings, wrote him to tell him she thought he was "a radical idiot."
"Do you know you cant[sic] procreate right? Well thank goodness for that," she wrote, according to Yahoo's Chris Moody.
She defended the email to Moody, explaining that "my feeling is the only reason he's running for president is to find more [sexual] partners."
Of course, Karger probably isn't too shocked by Billings' language-- he's received his fair share of push-back over his gay rights-focused campaign. One of his web ads was temporarily pulled from YouTube after it was flagged for inappropriate content. Even gay conservative group GOProud has said he is "not a credible candidate" and accused him of "running around the country with a rainbow flag" without actually making a case for why he'd make a good president.
Read Karger's HuffPost blog from earlier this month to find out more about why he's still running.
