Pitt bomb threat probe targets Cambria transgender pair
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | April 15, 2012 | Bill Vidonic

Posted on 04/16/2012 4:18:14 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

A transgender Cambria County couple said federal agents investigating the ongoing bomb threats at the University of Pittsburgh questioned them for nearly three hours last week, and the pair have been ordered to appear in front of a federal grand jury on Tuesday.

"We have absolutely nothing to do with (the threats), except for wanting the people who are making the threats caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," said Katherine Anne McCloskey, 55, of Jackson. "Whoever is doing this is a lunatic."

McCloskey, who was born a man but lives as a woman, and partner Seamus Johnston, 22, who was born female but lives as a male and is undergoing hormone treatments, denied any involvement with the bomb threats. They said they will appear before the grand jury and will surrender two computers for study.

"I'm very afraid, but I'm as confident as any innocent person can be in this country," Johnston said.

It was unclear on Saturday afternoon if anyone else had been ordered to appear before the grand jury. Johnston and McCloskey said they did not know of any other subpoenas, which they received on Thursday.

The U.S. Attorney's Office declined to comment, and two Pitt spokesmen said they had no information about the investigation.

"Pitt bomb threat"

I'm no fan of him myself, but I fail to understand why anyone would want to bomb Brad Pitt.

Yeah, his movies have been doing that all by themselves quite nicely lately.

I wish I could find the WPXI news video of these two but it is apparently embargoed (I wonder why?).

It is classic.

I bet Miss Johnston doesn’t have the stones to show us Mister McCloskey’s ovaries as evidence to their God given genders.
