Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite reports voicemail death threat
“Just wanna let you know I have 27 people that are going to make sure that this b**** does not live to see her next term. Good-bye."
The call comes amid reports that a number of Congressional Democrats have gotten threats or had bricks thrown through their office windows following a contentious vote on health care legislation Sunday.
Brown-Waite, 66, said she contacted the Capitol Police and the Hernando County sheriff. "Ginny is going to insist that these threats be prosecuted to the full extent of the law," the news release said.
“There are laws that state threatening a federal official is a serious crime," Brown-Waite said in a statement. "No one should take these death threats lightly. I will find the person who threatened to kill me and insure that they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
