The man arrested yesterday for allegedly threatening to kill Sen. Patty Murray, as recorded by a Murray staffer at 9:27 a.m. on March 27:
…I hope we shove this health-care bill so far down your throat. You shoved it down out throat, we’re gonna shove it up your ass. Yes, we’re gonna shove it up your ass. We’re gonna take your ass out of office. That way, you cannot harm us any more. Maybe I will not have to go to the end-of-life classes that you have planned for me. Maybe you should go to the end-of-life classes that you have planned for us. Because you’re gonna be there some day, too, yourself. So you better study up, my dear.
And at 6:10 p.m.:
Yes, Patty, I hope you choke on your health-care bill. We’re choking on it. Yes, me are a senior citizen on social security and medicare. I want to thank you so much, so much, very very much, for signing my death warrant. You, you have given me so much in your career, I don’t know how to thank you. Oh, gee, thank you so much. I, I just love this new health-care bill. I’m glad I finally got to state that I need to go pass away when I have out-lived my usefulness to you. Yes, that makes me so glad. At least I know that I will be taken care of, you know, in the after-life… It’s sad to say, but uh, we won’t go down without a fight. A big fight, and it can hurt people. You’re already hurting me, so when I’m hurt, I want to hurt back. And I think that turn-about’s fair play…Thank you so much for signing my death warrant. Too bad it’s not yours.
