Karamo denies allegations that she threatened to kill her family
Republican Secretary of State candidate Kristina Karamo is pushing back against allegations that she threatened to kill her family.
Driving the news: Court filings from last October, first obtained and published last week by Jezebel.com, detail an alleged incident in which Karamo said, "F--- it, I'll kill us all," while attempting to grab the steering wheel of a car driven by her husband that was carrying their two teenagers, according to Adom Karamo, the candidate's ex-husband.
What they're saying: "I have never harmed my children, any claims that I have are categorically false," Kristina Karamo said in a statement Friday in response to the story.
- "My ex-husband, making false allegations in 2021 on social media and in court documents, was an attempt to exploit the fact that I am a public figure, using it as leverage to change the custody agreement he became dissatisfied with," Karamo said.
What's next: Karamo will be out of state for the next 10 days to raise money for her campaign, a campaign spokesperson tells Axios.
