    Yakima County man charged with threatening to kill Sen. Patty Murray

    A 64-year-old Yakima County man has been charged with threatening to kill U.S. Sen. Patty Murray over her support of the National Health Care Reform Act.

    The FBI and local police arrested Charles Alan Wilson at his Selah home early Tuesday. Wilson was scheduled to make an appearance in U.S. District Court in Yakima, and he will then be transported to Seattle, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

    According to the charges, staffers in Murray's office in the Jackson Building in downtown Seattle had become concerned over a series of phone calls by an unknown man over the past several months. The calls came from a blocked number, and often were made in the evenings or on weekends.

    Usually, according to a staffer identified by the initials "M.G.," the calls were merely vulgar and harassing.

    But on March 22, "the caller began to make overt threats to kill and/or injure Senator Murray," according to the complaint signed by FBI Agent Carolyn Woodbury.

    In that message, a man the FBI says it has identified as Wilson stated, "I hope you realize there's a target on your back now ... Kill the [expletive] senator! I'll donate the lead."

    In several other vulgar and profanity-laced messages left over the next week, the caller repeatedly threatened the Democratic senator's life and said he "hopes somebody kills" President Obama as well, according to portions of transcripts in the complaint.
    Actually, I think the guy is unhinged, and hopefully, he will get some help. For now, it is good to get him off the street.

    Article is here.

    According to USA Today, Wilson had threatened to kill Murray over her support of Obama's health care bill, which was apparently the motive.

    In addition, a man has been arrested for threatening to kill Eric Cantor.

    I have a proposal to each side in the health care debate. To the left - Keep your nutters under control. To the right - Keep your nutters under control. End of Message.

    Hopefully this man gets help because he doesn't seem to be the most stable person in the world. Crazies just seem to be everywhere lately though.
