The Hill reports Thursday that the FBI and Capitol Police are investigating a death threat made against Rep. Bobby Schilling (R-IL).
According to The Blaze, the Illinios Republican was advised to “lay low” after an email surfaced offering $75,000 for Schilling’s death.
Schilling spokeswoman Andrea Pivarunas said the Representative learned of the threat Tuesday night. He, along with his family, are taking all recommended precautions as authorities investigate.
“I will pay $75,000 for ASSASSINATING Illinois Congresswoman [sic] Bobby Schilling and any US Congressman, US Senator and FBI, CIA and NSA DIRECTORS and their FAMILY MEMBERS regardless of their age,” reads the email.
The language used is very similar to a series of messages posted by Google user “FBInCIAnNSATerroristSlayer” starting in late September.
Gawker reports this user apparently goes by other user names, like “AmerGovtPsychopathsExposer” and “HusbandOfALLFBInCIAnNSA Agents,” and has made similar threats against the Obamas, “various congressmen, and David Letterman.”
Since September 17th he’s posted hundreds of threatening messages to Google Groups, on forums ranging from bicycling, to juggling to activism.
A spokesman for the FBI told the Times the “suspect in this case could have mental issues.” Probably!
Among the messages posted is this incoherent rant:
The INFINITELY CUNNING FBI, CIA and NSA WHITE CHRISTIAN TERRORISTS
of the Illuminati STARTED impersonating me and posting with my name from NewsDemon
to CONFUSE YOU dumb AmeriKKKunts.
I am telling you again. I am NOT a muslim and I have NO ulterior motive in my posts
other than EDUCATING AmeriKKKunts about the SECRET TORTURE TECHNOLOGIES
of the FBI, CIA, NSA and the Military Industrial Complex.
I am a TORTURE VICTIM myself for the last 10 years and you can google for the words
“Bounty on Bush, Bounty on Obama, Bounty on Robert Mueller etc”
These WHTIE CHRISTIAN TERRORISTS at FBI, CIA and NSA are trying to MANIPULATE
your MINDS into thinking that I am a muslim….
If I am a muslim, they would have locked me up in a prison long time back for the bounties
all over internet. Just think logically for a minute how EASY it would be for US
arrest and prosecute me if I am a muslim.
PLEASE do NOT fall for the DECEPTION and MANIPULATION of your EVIL GOVERNMENT.
Will Pay $100,000 for BOMBING WHITE HOUSE, CAPITOL HILL and FBI
EDGAR HOOVER BUILDING.
FBI, CIA, NSA Psychopaths who call themselves “The Illuminati” secretly
CHIPPED about 1 Million Americans with Synthetic Telepathy Mind Reading
and Mind Manipulation Chips and torturing the victims with Directed Energy
Weapons for more than 20 years.
I CHALLENGE all readers to email my THREAT to FBI, CIA, NSA and
Secret Service and get me arrested…….FBI TRANSVESTITES will NOT
arrest and prosecute me because they do NOT want me to EDUCATE
the rest of the Americans.
In Late September, this user allegedly offered $100,000 for killing President Obama, his immediate family, former President George W. Bush and members of the former administration.
“KILL the MASS MURDERERS, TERRORISTS, SADISTS, PERVERTS and PSYCHOPATHS George Bush, [Donald] Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney, FBI director Robert Mueller III, NSA Director Keith Alexander, CIA Director David Patraeus, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and National Intelligence director Dennis Blair,” the user posted.
The Hill adds:
Other messages included in the user’s profile include threats against FBI, CIA and NSA agents, as well as a $75,000 reward to assassinate Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.).
“We are aware of it,” Coffman’s spokesman, Joe Megyesy, told The Hill.
Capitol Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Schneider told Roll Call that authorities are conducting an “active investigation,” adding that “USCP does not discuss the security of Members of Congress, and any communication between USCP and any Member of Congress is confidential.”
