Updated: 4:55 p.m. U.S. Rep. Tom Perriellos brother received a threatening letter in the mail on the same day that someone apparently severed a gas line at the home in Ivy.
Two conservative Tea Party activists posted the address of the home on the Internet on Monday, mistakenly believing it was the home of the congressman. One of the activists urged others to drop by and express their thanks for Perriellos vote in favor of health care reform.
Tuesday evening, Perriellos brothers family smelled gas and discovered the propane line of a gas-powered grill on their screened-in porch had been slashed.

Seems like Obambi & Company want to pull off a series of mini “Reichstag fires” as an excuse for another power grab
to the grill?????
I’ll come back and hoot when the FBI concludes that it was self inflicted.
Did they find a noose on the doorknob?
That’s what I was thinking...this was probably more of a threat for the congressman to stay in line with the party, than for opposition threatening him.
dems are like the little wimps in first grade
Tom P is going to get waxed at the polls. He is only trying to sensationalize things.
Why would you sever it when you can just unscrew it?
The facts, as presented, strain credulity.
Great, another story about a fringe nut wacko for the media to blow out of proportion.
We will never know. The MSM sucks.
Anyone wanna bet that 99% of the racial slurs hollered at congress, leaking gas lines, rocks breaking windows, violence advocating internet posts, etc. are being done by the other side?
Clinton cemented a second term after the Oklahoma City bombing and using the media to portray it as the fault of Republicans.
“...the propane line of a gas-powered grill
on their screened-in porch had been slashed...”
Don’t put it past the ObamaThugs to do this inside job or the whole shebang is fabricated. NEVER trust a DemRat!
Yeah, he smelled gas? Wouldn’t the propane have had to be turned on for the cutting of the hose to cause a release of gas? Why was it on?
‘spose the wife could have moved the grill and pulled the hose in half, or sliced it on something...
Boy this is a stretch, ain’t it?!
Does propane have an odor?
I’ll bet ya 100% of these claims are false. dems want to start something.
Can we sue these Congressmen for defamation of character?
RIGHT you have to open the valve
I know. It’s a shame.
I doubt if any Tea Party people did this.
So far, all of the noise about tea party folks have all been discredited and in some casses proved to be done by sieu, or some other agent of the socialist, facist left!
They have no cred!
That’s what the talk hosts are saying. They want to make us mad.
Seriously? a bbq grill might have had a defective part? I thought it was to his house. I’ve gone through many grill part in my day and I never thought to blame a group of leftists.. i might have been able to get something for free.
He did it himself or some Union Thug. I don’t think Tea Party people would do this or even think of it. If it come down to violence—the right wing will not do things like this! Think Panzefaust not Weatherman Underground bombs.
They want to smear the Tea Psrty.
I leave my tank on. Yes, it has an odor.
Don’t those gas grills use a hose with woven wire in them to prevent a gas line rupture? something just doesn’t “smell” right here!
thats not the way....thats the communist democrat way
It does, but not nearly as strong as natural gas. If it was a 30 lb. gas grill canister, I'm guessing it would have all leaked out within 10 minutes or so, depending on how full the tank was.
.....and watch the contents totally empty in mere seconds, making it pretty much non-lethal unless:
#1. you were next going to club the owner over the head with the empty tank,
#2....or stand in the bushes and laugh hysterically as he has to go somewhere and purchase a fresh tank with his wife screaming at him loud enough for the neighbors to hear that he's "holding up dinner", and "I thought you said you checked the tank!!".
The Tea Party and 912 people I know would not do anything like that and I think if they knew who did it, they would turn them in.
No, but one is added so that you know if you have a leak. A propane leak is more dangerous than natural gas too due to the high pressure and wider combustible range.
Even O’Reilley was jumping on this bandwagon - and saying these tea party people must stop. Meanwhile does anyone remember the ACORN supporter who was running around with the Obama is Hitler poster - an agent provocateur, caught and admitted. The media is teeing off on this and it is like Soviet propaganda. Created to make a story to dishonor a political opponent.
Also - during the Iraq war - the media reported the War protesters as the salt of the Earth, and the media never showed these vile people making horrible statements. Thousands of Bush Hitler posters yet no complaints. Typical hypocrisy.
VISINE: NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT
Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Ivy
Why would you sever it when you can just unscrew it?
I find that curious, I wonder what brand it is.
My Aunt had the same thing happen with her old gas grill and worried kids had come into her backyard and done it.
I thought that a bit odd, why would kids do such a thing.
I wonder if there’s a brand of gas grill that has an issue with the gas lines?
So he’s using a gas grill INSIDE the porch/house? Not very bright.
You got that right. And, what moron leaves the propane turned on inside the house? Even outside for that matter!!!
Is there copper in those BarBQ lines? It could have been a meth head...lol
not enough details but this reeks of set-up.
I bet it was a set up.
“Clinton cemented a second term after the Oklahoma City bombing and using the media to portray it as the fault of Republicans.”
We are not the same gullible nation we were then. The Dems are going to have to find another Country (Mexico perhaps?) to destroy .... we’re onto their “social justice” ways.
I want to throw up every time I hear them speak about helping the poor. (lazy asses that won’t work and illegals) They are nothing but control freakin liars.
IMO, if the Commie B@stard in the WH was so concerned with the needed why did he change how much we could deduct to charities on our tax forms? He does not want churches or everyday good Samaritans helping the needy-he wants them DEPENDENT on the government.
