"A California man accused of threatening to kill Seattle Congressman Jim McDermott has been arrested and charged in federal court. Charles Turner Habermann -- a 32-year-old Palm Springs, Calif., resident...was arrested Wednesday morning on allegations that he made threatening phone calls to the office of the Seattle Democrat late last year.
According to charging documents, Habermann to have threatened to kill McDermott's friends and family, then, in the second call, threatened to put McDermott "in the trash."
"He said he was trying to scare them before they spent money that didn't belong to them," FBI Special Agent Dean Giboney told the court...Habermann also disparaged Democrats for their views on tax cuts and unemployment insurance, according to the statement.
In one (phone call), the caller was heard calling McDermott "a piece of human filth," "a communist," and a "piece of (expletive) garbage."
Federal prosecutors contend Habermann was investigated in March after making similar threats against a member of the California State Assembly.
In that instance, Habermann was escorted from the assembly member's office.
"During the meeting Habermann began ranting about the current federal health care bill and how Habermann was 'very well off' and did not want to support immigrants and Latinos..."
But of course, this guy is just a lone lunatic too, and it would be a blood libel to suggest that his views are in any way related to the exact same pack of lies that have been incessantly spread by the Republican party for the last two years, or that his murderous anger was in any way a product of the hatred projected as a matter of course by Republican spokesmen. No, in fact, he's probably a liberal.
