Single mother and Virginia state Senate candidate Tina Ramirez (R) made it clear that she was ready to fight back after self-described journalist David Leavitt apparently reported her to Child Protective Services over a tweet.

The offending tweet was a simple statement from Ramirez wishing her followers a happy Columbus Day — and Leavitt, who had previously expressed his own views eschewing the holiday, accused her of promoting rape and racism, among other things.

The spat escalated quickly throughout the day on Monday, and after Ramirez made it clear that she intended to teach her child history without interference from left-wing activists, Leavitt first entreated his 330,000+ followers to call CPS and report her for “abuse” because he claimed she was teaching her child to be racist.

Leavitt eventually opted to make the call himself — all the while complaining that he had to sit on hold for more than an hour to file his report with the state.

Ramirez pushed back, accusing Leavitt of wasting state resources in his pursuit of what amounted to political persecution — and Christina Pushaw, rapid response director for Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL), was among a number of people who suggested that might actually be a crime in the state of Virginia.

“Isn’t this a crime in VA? It’s like making a false 911 call or Swatting. Report him to the state police and AG’s office. Get him arrested. If he doesn’t face consequences he will do it again,” Pushaw said.

Ramirez apparently did just that, announcing on Tuesday that she had followed her words with actions — or, at least, with a phone call to Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares (R) to report the issue.

“I spoke with AG @JasonMiyaresVA’s office this morning about being falsely reported to CPS. He stands behind parent’s rights & I’m confident that the AG will fight for individual parent’s decisions to raise their kids & guard against efforts to weaponize our schools and CPS,” she tweeted.

“On a personal note, Abigail and I are doing great and we appreciate all the support as the left continues to bully our family,” she continued. “The real tragedy in all of this is the time wasted by @David_Leavitt, which consumed valuable CPS resources, putting children in harm’s way.”
