Congressional Democrats celebrated Rep. Frederica Wilson on Wednesday by wearing stickers adorned with a red cowboy hat and posing for a group picture on the steps of the Capitol.
But one notable person was missing: Wilson herself.
A source close to Wilson confirmed that the Florida Democrat was not in Washington this week due to ongoing threats against her after she criticized President Donald Trump's handling of a conversation with the family of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed during an Oct. 4 ambush in Niger.
Congressional vote tallies show that Wilson last voted Oct. 12, before the House adjourned for a weeklong break. She has missed 19 votes between Monday and Wednesday this week.
"Nothing else would keep her from voting," the source said.
Wilson did not respond to a request for comment.
"She's home," said Rep. Alcee Hastings, a Florida Democrat. "I have not spoken with her about it, but I've heard that she's received substantial death threats and I think she is doing everything she can to ratchet down and let some of us, including me, take over."
Hastings said she expected Wilson to return next week.
One racist threat against Wilson that surfaced on Facebook by a Chicago-area man is being investigated by police.
"Need ten good men to help carry out a lynching," the post read. "Must have own horse and saddle. Rope will be provided. This congresswomen (sic) is a disgusting pig. Someone should take their boot to her face."
The source close to Wilson said that there are "some" ongoing investigations into threats on the congresswoman.....

If she actually believes she’s going to be lynched by men on horseback, then she needs to be in a mental institution.
Which is not bad advice for any Dim, anyway.
When the “woman” has her cars smashed in at 3:30 AM because people didn’t like you criticizing their Facebook post on how they can only survive because of Obama Care, call me.
My first thought is Freddie has created most of these threats herself, or had them produced for her. That said, no one should be threatened with death just for being a complete fool, which she is. Being a fool is still legal. So there’s that.
Shes the one that started this whole frenzy.. dont kick a wasps nest and then cry because you got stung.
"She's home," said Rep. Alcee Hastings, a Florida Democrat. "I have not spoken with her about it, but I've heard that she's received substantial death threats......
freddy is the one who created this situation. now she takes time off her work? dragging out her 15 minutes as far as she can.
Putting aside for a moment whether there are actually any real threats ... threats do not prevent things. The left can't even speak in coherent sentences ... so tortured is their logic.
This is just like 'white privledge prevents black people from accomplishing this or that.' It doesn't even make structural sense.
Send somebody across the street from her house and have them say “Hey Frederica! It’s time to come out and plaaaaay!”
I call BS. Even if these aren’t BS, you still got to work. Many average citizens get threatened all the time and still function (and this is without the protections afforded to Congress).
EASILY the fakest fake in the history of fake fakery.
All hat, no cattle.
An empty chair.
Scalise back at work.
Shes afraid of being lynched by a statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest.
Still waiting for her to produce her dictionary.
Just more lies from the rock star’s ugly mouth.
Playing the victim of racism again.........yawn.......
Does not she have a rodeo dog to ride somewhere?
