FBI investigating assassination threat against Rep. Schilling
By Debbie Siegelbaum - 10/20/11 03:53 PM ET

The FBI and U.S. Capitol Police are investigating an online threat made against Rep. Bobby Schilling (R-Ill.) that offered a $75,000 reward for his assassination.

The FBI and Capitol Police also are investigating a similarly worded online threat against President Obama and his family and several other lawmakers.

Schilling learned of the threat against him in an email alert Tuesday night, according to his spokeswoman, Andrea Pivarunas. Sherriff’s deputies reportedly responded to the congressman’s district home and have passed the matter on to the FBI and Capitol Police.

“After receiving a very concerning email alert Tuesday evening, Rep. Schilling and his family are taking recommended precautions while the situation is investigated by relevant authorities,” wrote Pivarunas in an email to The Hill.

“He is grateful for the professionalism of local law enforcement in responding to this situation,” she added.

The email threat against Schilling states, "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,” according to local news reports.

Capitol Police declined to comment specifically on the matter, other than confirming their active investigation with the FBI.

In late September, a Google user offered up to $100,000 for killing the president and his immediate family, as well as George W. Bush, several members of his administration and Congress, The New York Times reported Thursday.

“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,” according to the posting obtained by the Hill.

The messages were posted by Google user FBInCIAnNSATerroristSlayer, and contain language parallel to that of the threat made against Schilling. 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.

A spokesman for the FBI declined to comment on the investigations and any link between the threats. The Capitol Police did not immediately return a request for comment on the connection.

This ain’t good! And, the fact that a Representative is given top billing over the TOTUS is astonishing.

Sounds stupid to me. Where would the assassin go to collect his payment? Sounds like a Chicago way of creating jobs.

Andrew Jackson – shot at by Richard Lawrence (Suspected Democrat plot, no proof.)
Abraham Lincoln – 3 attempts – Democrats, Baltimore, 1861; Democrat confederates, Aug, 1864, Shot at from ambush; shot dead by J.W. Booth, Democrat, April, 1865
James A. Garfield – shot by Charles J. Guiteau, utopian communalist. (modern progressive)
William McKinley – shot by Leon Czolgosz, Far left Socialist
Theodore Roosevelt - shot, wounded, by John F. Schrank, Anti third term motive.
Franklin D. Roosevelt – Shot at by Giuseppi Zangara, Marxist
Harry S. Truman – attacked by Oscar Collazo, Griselio Torreslo, Leftist revolutionaries, wanted a Socialist Puerto Rico.
John F. Kennedy – shot by Lee H. Oswald, Communist.
Richard Nixon - Samuel Byck thought Nixon was oppressing the poor, attempted airplane hijack to crash into White House.

He threatened Obama (offered bounty) and his family in the post above I just found.

Nice little list there!

Would you be so kind as to freepmail that to me please?

I would even support you writing a vanity post reagarding this brief history.

I would really like to know more about the attempt on Jackson.

Andrew Jackson was the last Democrat who was worth a crap. He expanded the territory of the United States, eliminated the Federal Reserve of his day, PAID OFF the Federal debt (not just balanced the budget), and HE DEPORTED FROM THE UNITED STATES NONCITIZEN GROUPS WITH TERRORISTIC TENDENCIES.

Admittedly, that last one was not done with the kid gloves of the 21st century, but was pretty mild compared to what other countries did in his day.

In other words, regardless of Glenn Beck’s opinions, Jackson was/is too conservative to be nominated by today’s GOP!

The pattern is, we don’t spend enough time hanging leftists.

From reading his/her online postings......he’s threatened just about everyone in politics! One poster alluded to him being a ‘foreigner’. I’m still trying to look into that.
