Illinois Democratic Rep. Stephanie Kifowit calls for the deaths of GOP Rep.

Democrat Rep. Stephanie Kifowit said she wanted to pump a "broth of Legionella" into Republican Rep. Peter Breen's water system so his wife and children would "be infected" and "ultimately die."
"I would like to make him a broth of Legionella and pump it into the water system of his loved ones so that they can be infected, they can be mistreated, they can sit and suffer by getting aspirin instead of being properly treated and ultimately die," Kifowit said in a fit of rage.
Kifowit's horrifying remark "came just before the Illinois House voted 71-36 to override Gov. Bruce Rauner’s amendatory veto of a bill to increase the cap the state pays in civil litigation cases from $100,000 to $2 million," The Chicago Sun-Times reported.
A few minutes after Kifowit's shocking statement, Republican Rep. Jeanne Ives came to Breen’s defense on the legislative floor.
In response, Republican Rep. Jeanne Ives blasted Democrat Kifowit: "How dare you concoct up some sort of story about brewing up some batch of Legionella and having him feed it to his family...How dare you...wish death on my colleague Peter Breen, his wife, and his 2 adopted kids" pic.twitter.com/bhv5xblep9— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) November 30, 2018
According to the Washington Post, Rep. Breen's two sons are aged two years and two months.
