A leader of the petition drive to get a vote on the domestic partners ordinance said the detective who got same-sex benefits in Collegedale is threatening petition leader Mark West.
April Eidson of Citizens for Accountability and Transparency in Government said, "The primary proponents of the domestic partner ordinance are Chattanooga Organized for Action and Detective Kat Cooper from Collegedale. A friend contacted me this evening, because Kat Cooper is posting threatening statements regarding Mark West on Facebook.
"This goes beyond the normal political language. All CGAT is doing is collecting signatures."
The Facebook post from Det. Cooper says, "I'm looking foward to stomping the crap out of West in an anti-hate campaign."
