Falling behind his opponent in the election results, Arizona superintendent candidate Frank Riggs had a public meltdown on Twitter on Sunday night.
Riggs, a 68-year-old Republican, called his critics punks and cowards, challenged them to compete against him in the gym, and accused them of denigrating his military service.
When Phoenix New Times reachedout to Riggs for comment on Monday morning, he did not respond. He then proceeded to delete the tweets posted on Sunday night, and briefly deactivated his account.
In a follow-up text message, Riggs wrote, “Please do not contact me. You are not authorized to use or share my mobile number. Please acknowledge receipt of this request.”
“You & your pasty ilk are welcome to join me @ 5 am for one of my daily workouts. Can you do a pull-up yet?” -Frank Riggs
