He told WESH: “I feel like this is a threat to me and my family, so I'm not too happy about it. You can see them slowing down when they go by my house, so everybody's just driving by and reading it."

Gordon, however, may know who did it. “A group of them, and I leave them to God,” he told WESH-TV.
