A self-professed liberal democrat and communist (There’s a difference?) was arrested this week for sending threatening letters to politicians including Maine Republican Governor Paul LePage, Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker and Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa.
Hoft goes on to quote The Online Sentinel.
Authorities also found a gun and an ammunition clip in Michael Thomas’ desk drawer when he was arrested Friday, FBI Special Agent Pamela Flick testified; and Thomas told her that if they had showed up later, he would have launched a shootout with police.
LePage received three letters attributed to Thomas, saying among other things that the author was willing to sacrifice his life to shoot the governor. Thomas told agents on Friday that he would follow through on the threats if he had the means, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Stacey Neumann.
Thomas admitted sending threatening letters similar to those sent to LePage to U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, and U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., as well as Walker, Snowe and Collins, she said. Thomas described himself as a liberal Democrat and a communist and said he is a strong proponent of gun rights.
How long until this news, including Thomas’ politics, is widely disseminated in the lamestream media? (I know, never gonna happen, doesn’t fit Teh Narrative.)
