At least three advocacy organizations active in the 2022 election season have become targets of politically motivated domestic terrorism.
Last week, Conservation Voters New Mexico reported receiving an anonymous envelope containing mail pieces about the election campaign of State Rep. Nathan Small (HD36, Las Cruces), covered in antisemitic imagery and containing a chemical substance that is a chemical precursor to a potent toxin often used in terrorist attacks. The letters attacked Rep. Small and the Democratic Party and included images defaced with drawings of swastikas and Hitler.
The New Mexico State Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO and EDF Action Votes also received similar envelopes:
The only statement from any Republican Party representative on these attacks targeting advocacy organizations who endorsed Rep. Small, a Democrat and conservationist, was, “We are unable to comment until we review a police report.”
