Philadelphia Man Charged with Threatening to Kill U.S. Congressman and His Family
PHILADELPHIAToday, a two-count complaint and warrant was filed charging Norman Leboon with threatening to kill United States Congressman Eric Cantor and his family, and threatening to kill Congressman Eric Cantor, who is an official of the United States, announced United States Attorney Michael L. Levy and FBI Special Agent in Charge Jan Fedarcyk. As set forth in the affidavit to the complaint and warrant, in or about late March, 2010, Leboon created and then transmitted a YouTube video to Google over the Internet, in which he threatened to kill Congressman Cantor and his family. No harm came to the Congressman or his family as a result of Leboons threats.
The Department of Justice takes threats against government officials seriously, especially threats to kill or injure others, said Levy. Whether the reason for the threat is personal or political, threats are not protected by the First Amendment and are crimes.

The use of Marijuana while comitting a felony?
Be interesting what they tacked on.
See I’d go around threatening Congresscritters as I’m not afraid of a 15 year prison sentence or a 250K fine. But that gosh-darned $200 special assessment is just too much for me to bear....
The Horror!!!!$200 means no new PS3 games until May!!!
Right-wing Christian ‘Teabagger’ for sure! Most likely a Bush voter!
Norman Leboon is a white gay moslem Huffington Post member, according to an earlier thread.
Actually, I read it and my first thought was "good, solid Huguenot name."
The MSM is silent when it comes to real crimes and death threats, yet they shriek hysterically for days and days when it comes to alleged threats and actions against dems.
F*** the MSM
"LeBoon"...French, maybe Dutch.
He's a Muslim convert, apparently. That's the salient point.
Our local talk-dj played a clip of him threatening someone in Hollywood for making the little pig movie, "Babe".
Gosh no R by his name. Must have voted for the crap bill and this tea party guy is threatening his life.
