SHEBOYGAN — State Sens. Joe Leibham and Glenn Grothman said they are among as many as 18 Republican senators who received a death threat following their votes to eliminate most collective bargaining powers for public workers.
The threat was sent in an e-mail late Wednesday with the subject, "Death threat!!!! Bomb!!!!" according to a copy of the letter released by Grothman's office. The e-mail also was addressed to Sen. Pam Galloway, R-Wausau.
Grothman, R-West Bend, said the e-mail is the latest example of "a new height in incivility." He said in recent weeks he has received obscene phone calls at all hours of the night, been jostled at the Capitol and has been shouted down during interviews.
I suppose this is what Jesse Jackson meant by escalating the protests or what Claire McCaskill (D-MO) meant by American's needing to "Take Up Pitchforks". Or could be what Mike Capuano (D-MA) meant about "getting a little bloody".
Weren't we just talking about the dangers of language and crazies a few weeks back even though it wasn't relevant? At least someone on the left was able to take a few minutes away from their blood lust of Sarah Palin to threaten law makers at the state level. By the time this is all over you'll have seen plenty of violence from these folks. This is only the beginning.
