Court Records Show Michigan Secretary of State Candidate Karamo Threatened to Kill Her Family

The Trump-backed candidate for Michigan’s Secretary of State, Kristina Karamo, threatened to kill her own daughters after her husband filed for divorce, according to court records filed on Friday.

 “Fu_K it, I’ll kill us all,” she once said, as she tried to take control of the wheel with the children in back and the now ex-husband at the wheel.

The filing states:

  • Karamo was committed to an institution for evaluation due to her efforts at self-harm and suicide
  • ex-husband Adom Karamo was in fact trapped in the marriage for years, always subject to the threat of Mother committing suicide
  • family members discouraged the ex-husband from revealing that she had threatened to kill her daughters in response to his ask for a divorce, saying she had been experiencing a mental health crisis at the time

Karamo denies the allegations and said, “I have never harmed my children, any claims that I have are categorically false.” 

Karamo has been known to say some weird things.

  • The Republican nominee once called abortion an act of child sacrifice. “Abortion is really nothing new,” Karamo said in 2020 on her podcast. “The child sacrifice is a very satanic practice, and that’s precisely what abortion is. And we need to see it as such.”
  • She has called public schools “government indoctrination camps,” where “you’re forced to have your child be exposed to types of unbridled wickedness that these Democrats and liberals want to teach your child.”
  • Karamo is concerned that culture is pushing the normalization of pedophilia. “When we normalize people fornicating and we normalize people living together with their boyfriends and girlfriends and all that stuff, we open a door for us to get to the point where we have people want to normalize pedophilia.”
  • On transgenders, she says they are “mentally ill adults playing dress up. That is also part of the horrifically destructive sexual revolution.”
  • Karamo also claims that Donald Trump won the 2020 election.

Incumbent Democrat Jocelyn Benson raised nearly four times more than Karamo from the start of the year to mid-August, with more than 11 times the amount of total campaign cash.
