Teabagger Arrested For Making Death Threats To Nancy Pelosi Over HCR

The FBI has arrested a California man for making telephoned death threats to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her backing of the health care reform bill.
Charges against the man have yet to be disclosed, but they are expected to be filed in federal court in California. Several federal officials said the man made dozens of calls to Pelosi's homes in California and Washington, as well as to her husband's business office. They said he recited her home address and said if she wanted to see it again, she would not support the health care overhaul bill that since has been enacted. One official said the man is believed to have spoken directly with Pelosi at least once. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case publicly. A call to the FBI office in San Francisco was not immediately returned, nor was a call to a spokesman for Pelosi.
Yesterday another arrest was made for similar threats made against Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA). Last month a mentally ill Philadelphia man was arrested for two year old YouTube threats against Rep. Eric Cantor as the GOP desperately scrambled for any proof that they too were being targeted.
