The man arrested today for allegedly threatening to kill Sen. Patty Murray, as recorded by a Murray staffer on the morning of March 22:
I hope you realize, there's a target on your back now. There are many people out there that want you dead. Just remember that as you are politicking for your reelection. It only takes one piece of lead... Kill the fucking senator! Kill the fucking senator! I'll donate the lead... Now that you've passed your health-care bill, let the violence begin. Let the violence begin. There's people gonna get hurt over this son of a bitch. We, the people, will not subside, succumb to socialism. Let the violence begin. You will find out and you will actually really pay. You have awakened a sleeping giant. The American people will not put up with it. We are not a country of cowards, as one of the high ranking people of this administration says. You'll find out how fucking cowardly we really are, my dear. Better get under your desk.
