Amy and her father Wayne say comments on conservative blogs are promising to reveal her home address and others have threatened to rape the 16-year-old.
"A lot of them are calling me a whore," Amy says.
Wayne Myers told the Cherry Hill Courier Post that Amy's high school has also received threatening mail directed at Amy.
The family says although they're concerned about Amy's safety, she's not backing off her challenge to debate Bachmann. So far, however, Team Bachmann has not given any indication the Congresswoman is up to the challenge.
