Wisconsin Republicans Receive Death Threats

Thursday, 10 Mar 2011 07:44 PM

 

MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Department of Justice is investigating an e-mail threatening the lives of some Republican state senators.

DOJ spokesman William Cosh says the Division of Criminal Investigation is investigating one e-mail and other threats from several sources, but he declined to be specific.

A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says two death threat e-mails that were sent to Fitzgerald’s office Wednesday night have been forwarded to Capitol police. Andrew Wellhouse says the address of the e-mail sender was apparent but that police directed him not to disclose it.

The e-mail to Fitzgerald says he and his “Republican dictators” must die because of their actions “today and in the past couple of weeks,” presumably referring to GOP senators passing a bill removing most public employees’ collective bargaining rights.
