Florida state Sen. Daphne Campbell, a Democrat who is running for re-election in state’s 38th District, called police on Thursday to report Miami Herald reporter Sarah Blaskey.

Blaskey was covering a debate between Campbell and her Democratic opponent Jason Pizzo at the time.

The Miami Herald reported:

A responding North Miami Beach officer who declined to give his name explained that police had been called by Campbell about threats made by a woman in a floral dress — a clear reference to the attire of Herald reporter Sarah Blaskey.

Campbell did not publicly clarify what “threats” Blaskey allegedly made, and Blaskey said the only thing she is guilty of committing is “an act of journalism.”

The same day that Campbell called police on Blaskey, Rise News published a police report from the Miami Shores Police Department detailing a similar incident that took place in May.

According to that report, Campbell called police to report Rise News publisher Rich Robinson for filming her at a public event in a public place. Police also declined to arrest Robinson.
