New letter threatens to post names of Merkley voters

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Another disturbing letter has popped up on the doorsteps of a southeast Portland neighborhood, signed only by a person known as "Artemis of the Wildland." The flyers have appeared before, and the city of Portland has called them hate speech in the past.  

The latest note showed up in the Laurelhurst neighborhood and says, "The names of registered voters in this neighborhood who cast ballots for Jeff Merkley in the Nov. 4 election will be posted where they'll be seen by taxpayers."

Past letters from this writer have focused on people receiving food stamps and those with disabilities.
Portland Police have said that while the writer of the letters may not be breaking any laws, they still want to learn his or her identity.
