A mysterious robot targeting the widow of the late Ron Wright, Texas, with what her allies call “criminal slander,” accusing her of killing her husband and claiming that her campaign for Congress was a cover-up.
Susan Wright is a candidate in the special election for the 6th Congressional District of Texas, where she is leading for the replacement of her late husband. Her campaign learned of the robots who accused her of killing her husband on Friday, a day before the primary.
The late congressman died in February after being diagnosed with COVID-19 and years of battling lung cancer. Politico first reported robocall on Friday.
In a statement Friday, candidate Wright called the accusations of robocall “illegal, immoral and wrong.”
RON WRIGHT: WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT THE LATE CONGRESSMAN OF REPUBLICAN TAXI
“There’s no sewer that some politicians don’t drain,” Wright said. “Imagine: someone attacking my late husband, the love of my life, a man who gave me such joy in life.”
“I will not allow darkness to rule,” she continued. “I live in the light of Christ, and his truth will sustain me – as it sustained me when I lost my husband.”
Wright’s campaign consultant Matt Langston also issued a statement saying the campaign reported “criminal defamation” to law enforcement and “began cooperating with authorities.”
“Susan’s opponents are desperate and resort to disgusting politics because they know she’s leading,” Langston said. “I look forward to someone going to jail for these robots, but it’s a Sunday problem. We win on Saturday.”
WIDOW OF THE CONGRESS OF A TEXAS WHO DIED FROM COVID-19 TO SEEK THE FORMER SEAT
The calls come from a blocked number and it is alleged that Wright “killed” her husband and that she was trying to “cover up” him by running for Congress.
“According to confidential sources, Susan Wright … received a $ 1 million life insurance policy for the life of her late husband, Ron Wright, six months before his death,” the female voice said in the recording.
The record also claims that hospital administrators at Baylor Scott and White Hospital said Wright “tearfully confided in a nurse that she had deliberately contracted the coronavirus.”
“Baylor Hospital has officially referred the crime to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and they have now launched a formal criminal investigation into the matter,” the recording said.

Robocall concludes: “Clearly, voters in Texas’s 6th Congressional District deserve to know the truth about Susan Wright and her involvement in her husband’s death.”
There is no evidence to support robocall’s claims.
Wright is the first contestant in Texas’s 6th Congressional District and has received approval from former President Donald Trump.
If no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote, the first two participants in the vote will run in the runoff.
