Bismarck City Attorney files harassment claim over COVID-19 issues

(Bismarck, ND) — Bismarck City Attorney Jannelle Combs is claiming in a police complaint that she is being harassed online, and particularly on social media. Combs filed a report over the weekend, saying she’d received death threats. She also says she is the target of a campaign to get her fired. The backlash stems from Combs’ work on COVID-19 issues. Bismarck Burleigh Public Health Director Renae Moch has also spoken out about extreme online harassment she’s received because of her work related to the pandemic. Bismarck Mayor Steve Bakken said yesterday at a city commission meeting he’s calling for an end to the harassment, which he says will not be tolerated.
