BRADDOCK, Pa. (AP) — The wife of Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor says state police have identified and spoken with a woman who used a racial slur in confronting her at a western Pennsylvania grocery store.

Gisele Fetterman says the woman appeared to recognize her and began harassing her late Sunday afternoon at a store near the Fetterman home in Braddock. She's the wife of Democratic Lt. Gov. John Fetterman.

Gisele Fetterman says the woman directed a racial epithet at her repeatedly, even following after Fetterman retreated to her vehicle in the parking lot.

That’s where Fetterman recorded a two-second clip and posted it to social media. A state police spokesman says he is unsure of the status of any investigation and offered no immediate comment.
