Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., is staying away from Washington because of ongoing threats against her, the Miami Herald is reporting.

Wilson came under the national spotlight after she criticized President Donald Trump's condolence call with the family of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in Niger on Oct. 4.

A source close to Wilson confirmed the information.

"Nothing else would keep her from voting," the source said.

According to the Herald, Wilson last voted on Oct. 12, right before the House adjourned for a week-long break. She has failed to vote 19 times between Oct. 23 to 25, the newspaper said.

Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., also confirmed Wilson is not in Washington, but he expects her to return next week.

"She's home," he said. "I have not spoken with her about it, but I've heard that she's received substantial death threats and I think she is doing everything she can to ratchet down and let some of us, including me, take over."

Meanwhile, Newsweek reported the FBI is already investigating one threat against her. That threat, made on Facebook, called for a lynch mob against her.
