Secret Service visits Lufkin woman after 'death threat' allegation from an Obama campaign volunteer

A Lufkin woman received a surprise visit from the Secret Service last week because of a "death threat" comment she reportedly made about Sen. Barack Obama to a campaign volunteer asking for her support of the presidential candidate.
Two federal agents arrived at Jessica Hughes' home Thursday to ask her if she said, "I will never support Obama and he will wind up dead on a hospital floor."
Jessica Savage/The Lufkin Daily News (ENLARGE) Jessica and Micah Hughes say two Secret Service agents showed up on their doorstep Thursday after a campaign volunteer for Sen. Barack Obama accused her of making a 'death threat' during a phone conversation a day earlier.
Hughes said her words were deliberately twisted by a volunteer who was apparently unhappy Hughes was rude during a phone conversation the two had. The Lufkin mother, a Republican, said she received a call on her cell phone Wednesday from a woman with the Obama Volunteers of Texarkana.
"She asked if I was an Obama supporter, to which I replied, 'No, I don't support him. Your guy is a socialist who voted four times in the state Senate to let little babies die in hospital closets; I think you should find something better to do with your time.' (And then) I hung up."
(Hughes is referring to a "born alive" Illinois bill that did not pass in the Illinois state Senate in 2005 and had previously been opposed by Obama because he said it undermined Roe v. Wade, according to FactCheck.org, a non-partisan organization. A federal version of the bill, which Obama said he would have supported, passed by unanimous consent and was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2002.)
Obama Campaign Communications for Texas director Josh Taylor declined to comment Monday, refusing to answer any questions and referring the matter to the Secret Service, which he said is conducting an investigation. A message left with a Secret Service agent in Houston was not immediately returned.
Hughes said she was surprised to see two Secret Service agents at her door, and upset to learn that the conversation she had with the volunteer apparently had not been recorded.
"I find it hard to believe that (campaign volunteers) don't tape these calls. They call people unsolicited and they aren't monitoring the calls or recording them? I think that is absolutely ridiculous," she said.
"I mean, how often must this happen that someone is rude to a volunteer that they don't want to talk to?"
Hughes said she wants to file a countercomplaint against the volunteer.
"She has made a charge that will follow me the rest of my life," she said.
"I find that repugnant and violating that some person got her undies in a bundle because she didn't like what I had to say."
Pinging a few Texans and OTHER folks here as well.

Ping! Ping! Ping!
Piggyback ping! Important ping, Meek.
The Feds seemed deliberately intimidating to me [noting post 1]. Refused to give badge numbers or cards. Made veiled threats.
What ticked the Zero supporter off:
“She asked if I was an Obama supporter, to which I replied, ‘No, I don’t support him. Your guy is a socialist who voted four times in the state Senate to let little babies die in hospital closets; I think you should find something better to do with your time.’ (And then) I hung up.”
[The most unreliable ping list in the forum. Want off? Please feel free to cuss me out.
Want on my ping list? Just ‘ax’.]
“At one point I went inside and got a notepad to record their badge numbers and they refused to show me their badges. They had done the quick flip when they arrived. I asked for a card and the female Agent refused to give me one stating “You’re not going to get a card.” The male Agent gave me a card and told me I could contact Houston with any questions.”
Thank you for your comment. To update everyone following this, I have contacted the FBI who told me they have no jurisdiction, but that unless I take legal action this file and report will follow me the rest of my life. I have also contacted my Senator, Kay Bailey Hutchison and Congressman Louie Gohmert and I am hoping they will at least point me to SOMEONE with authority to bring this case to court. I want the file purged and I want this woman charged. If anyone wants to watch for updates on it I will be posting them at my own blog: Young, Wise and Conservative (ywc.bogtownhall.com)

A continuation of the 900+ FBI files era!!!
Does anybody remember the exact words Obama used last night speaking of his volunteer corps plans?
Ping to post # 44.
Welcome to Free Republic Jessica! Your pro-life stand did not go unnoticed despite the threats and intimidation. Proud to have you here. ;o)
This what happens when you say to cool-aid drinking white trailer trash: "Call on your neighbors, get into their faces, YOU are my ambassadors"!!!
Jessica, go nail this lady.
My caller ID only shows the dialed number!!!
The dormant militant black community sees this election as a bloodless coup, a win in November will be seen as the birth of a revolution in America and an overturn of the traditional white power structure at which their now mostly silent leaders have railed and relied upon to feed the lust of envy ever since reconstruction.
It is indeed an us vs them thing for many and if Obama wins we’ll see them back pounding on the very doors of the treasury.
Hussein’s theme has always been “we are taking this country in a new direction.” He says this repeatedly on the campaign trail and in the debates. He does not make his intentions a secret. Jessica’s experience gives us a sneak preview of the “new direction” he has in mind...
It is all over the map (tip of the iceberg) from A citizen of Kenya, Indonesia and from Odinga's playbook: First Jerome Corsi deported from Kenya yesterday and a Sheriff in Ft. Myers, Florida:

Thanks for the ping!
Welcome to Free Republic. I would suggest you begin carrying a very compact and cheap recorder with you. It seems like a really good idea to be able to record any conversations you may be surprised by.... ie secret service. Especially hostile SS, as the woman who wouldn’t give you her card seemed to be.
They can be purchased for around 50 bucks. You don’t have to stick it in their faces, just subtly turn it on and hold it.
Here you are! Welcome to Free Republic. Thank you for fighting the fight! May victory be yours.
This is UNBELIEVABLE!

FOLKS WE HAVE TO STOP THIS CRAP IN IT’S TRACKS!!
OBAMA BROWNSHIRTS NOW HAVE THE SECRET SERVICE DOING THEIR BIDDING PING!!
If you aren’t scared yet check out this youtube video of the new breed of ‘blackshirts’ (fascist Italy):
It took me a couple of listens to realize that as they march in they are chanting “Alpha! Omega!” the words Christ used to describe himself: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.”
A very disturbing chant, obviously comparing Obama to the Messiah.
