Vernon Jones filed a complaint with the Morgan County Sheriff's Office over a tweet sent by opponent Mike Collins' campaign.

"Although some use a rape whistle for protection against sexual assault, a 9mm is the more preferred form of protection," the tweet reads. "#TheMoreYouKnow"

The tweet also includes two photographs--one of a rape whistle with RealVernonJones.com printed on it and the other of a pink handgun.

The context of the tweet is a 2005 rape allegation against Jones, a Democrat at the time, when he was the DeKalb County CEO. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation investigated, but the case never went to a grand jury and he was never criminally charged.

"He’s encouraging violence against me, my family, my supporters," Jones told FOX 5’s Rob DiRienzo. "These are the same false attacks that liberals used against President Trump, Justice Kavanaugh, and Justice Clarence Thomas."

I don't know anything about the tweeters original intent, but as someone that knows nothing of the situation I read it as someone advocating for firearms over rape whistles for protection.

Not sure how that's a threat.

My thoughts exactly! Looks more like he still has Democrat tendencies....

Oh, and from the same story, further down:

A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office said investigators reviewed the tweet and determined it did not break any laws, but they have Jones’ statement on file.


I'd say that the Morgan County Sheriff's Office agrees with us.

Lol, it will be nice to see Vernon fade into oblivion once he loses this election.

I don't know anything about either person and that's exactly how I read it too.  A 9mm trumps a whistle every time.
