PHILADELPHIA -- A Philadelphia man charged with threatening a Virginia congressman is being held without bail pending a psychiatric evaluation.

Authorities say 38-year-old Norman Leboon tried to post a YouTube video in which he threatened to kill Rep. Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican, who is House minority whip.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Reed said Mr. Leboon is wanted by city authorities in another threat case.

Mr. Reed said the threat against Mr. Cantor does not appear to be connected to the health care reform bill. He says it's not clear whether Mr. Leboon was upset with Mr. Cantor about other issues. He told a judge Mr. Leboon appears to have major psychiatric issues.

The FBI said Mr. Leboon calls himself the "son of the god of Enoch" in the video and calls Cantor "pure evil."

Mr. Leboon's public defender declined comment.
