A New Jersey man who made threatening phone calls to public officials including Louisiana’s governor and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann was arrested today. Authorities charged 27-year-old Ronnie McMillian of Hawthorne, N.J., with two counts of transmitting threats to injure another through interstate commerce.
Here’s the message he left Rebuplican Governor Bobby Jindal:
“And you better keep in your f—ing little head, you little maggot—you better keep in your f—ing head that gay people have Second Amendment rights, too, you little [unintelligible]. So you better back the f— off or [begins yelling] every single one of you white [Re]publican parasites are going to get a bullet in your f—ing head.”
If convicted, he faces a maximum potential penalty of five years in prison per count and a fine of up to $250,000. United States Attorney Fishman credited United States Capitol Police Supervisory Special Agent Jason Bel; and special agents of the FBI, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Michael B Ward, for the investigation leading to the arrest.
