How dumb do you have to be to threaten a member of Congress who was shot by an unhinged left winger just over a year ago? Wouldn’t you think the Secret Service would follow up on such a threat as a priority?
FOX News reported:
NY man arrested over threats to GOP’s Scalise, McMorris Rodgers
Police have arrested a western New York man accused of leaving threatening voicemail messages for two high-ranking Republican members of Congress — including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.
Carlos Bayon, 63, faces a federal charge of making threats across state lines. Sources told Fox News his messages were addressed to Scalise, R-La., and Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash.
Scalise was among five people wounded in June 2017 after a gunman attacked a Republican baseball practice. Doctors said Scalise was near death after he suffered shattered bones and damaged internal organs. He was hospitalized for more than a month and now relies largely on crutches and an electric scooter to move around the Capitol.
U.S. Attorney James Kennedy described the voicemail threats as credible and added that “very concerning” items turned up in Bayon’s home north of Buffalo.
According to prosecutors, the messages left by Bayon on June 30 stated in part: “Hey listen, this message is for you and the people that sent you there. You are taking ours, we are taking yours. Anytime, anywhere.”
The left is basically panicking because they think they may have lost power for a long time, and they may have. But it’s making them do some really stupid things.
