    A Philadelphia man who threatened a Congressman and his family in a YouTube video has been found incompetent to stand trial and ordered to undergo psychiatric treatment. Norman Leboon, 38, will be sent to a federal prison and mental health facility for four months, with the goal of treating him so he is capable of standing trial, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert K. Reed said Tuesday. Leboon appears in the video attacking U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor (R., Va.), the Republican House whip. The incident received wide attention, coming as it did shortly after the Democratic-controlled Congress passed President Obama's controversial health...

    A Democratic National Committee donor was arrested on Monday for death threats that he reportedly made toward Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), but many journalists are still blaming the conservative "tea party" movement for allegedly fomenting political violence. Philadelphia Norman Leboon, 33, was charged for posting a YouTube video in which he threatened to kill Cantor and his family, just days after a bullet was fired through the window of Cantor’s Richmond campaign office by an unknown gunman."You receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer's abominations," Leboon reportedly...

    All we heard last week was that the "Teabaggers" were guilty of "inciting violence." For instance, by her use of traditional political metaphorical language like "reload" and "targeted," Sarah Palin, the right-wing Moosiah, was sending clear signals to her rabid followers to literally hunt down progressives. And there were those stories about protesters shouting the "N"-word against Reps. Lewis and Cleaver--although audio of the alleged incident could detect no such shouts. Even so, all you heard last week was how the right wing had become dangerously unhinged and was turning violent. Well, now today, lo and behold, there is...

    A man accused of threatening to kill House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) appears to have twice donated money to Barack Obama's presidential campaign, the Center for Responsive Politics' research indicates. Federal records indicate a Norman Leboon Sr. of Philadelphia donated $255 to Obama's campaign on June 20, 2008, followed the next day by a $250 donation. They are the only federal-level donations made by a person with the surname "Leboon" on record.

    The man arrested in Philadelphia for a video death threat made against Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) did not limit his activity to the GOP minority whip. At his YouTube account, going by the name shiamuslimcantbestop, Leboon recorded hundreds of rambling, poorly-lit video threats against movie studios, politicians, religious figures and media pundits. I’ll be interested to see what conservatives do with the information that Leboon donated to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign — that decision aside, there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to the threats Leboon would make, looking into a camera, as the self-appointed “messiah.” Leboon threatens...
