Capitol Police Arrest Man Who Threatened To Kill Senator Rand Paul And His Family With An Axe

Senator Rand Paul was on the baseball field last year when a Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on Republicans. Then Paul was attacked in his yard by one of his neighbors who had become deranged. Now he has been threatened by a man who wants to kill Paul and his family but the man has been arrested.

Capitol police arrest Berkeley man after threats to member of Congress

A Berkeley man was arrested on suspicion of threatening a federal official last week, just days after he allegedly wrote to a member of Congress he would “gut you like a hog” and kill the member’s family.

Nathanial Blaine Luffman — a former Kentucky resident, according to his Facebook page — was arrested June 27 and is being taken to Oregon to face a single charge of retaliating against a federal official by way of threats. It carries a maximum term of 10 years in prison.

While Luffman’s alleged victim is not named in court records describing the threats, U.S. Capitol Police describe him as an Oregon elected official with an office at a federal building in Portland. The court records also say the suspect has been associated with “other known threatening communications to members of Congress.”…

Luffman also allegedly left a voicemail threatening to “hack to pieces” the official and his daughters, used the hashtag #ObamaForLife and claimed that the official was involved in a plot to assassinate ex-President Barack Obama in Kentucky.

Hours after Luffman’s arrest was entered into the federal court system, Kentucky’s junior senator, Sen. Rand Paul, tweeted, “Thank you to the US Capitol Police for their arrest of the man who recently threatened to kill my family and me.”

Here’s Paul’s tweet:
