"This morning, Twitter locked our account for posting the video of real-world, violent threats made against Mitch McConnell. This is a problem with the speech police in America today," McConnell campaign manager Kevin Golden said. "The Lexington Herald-Leader can attack Mitch with cartoon tombstones of his opponents. But we can’t mock it."
