Man Charged With Threatening To Kill Democrat Senator Patty Murray Over Health Bill

TPM~Charles Alan Wilson, a 64-year-old Washington man who was angered over health care reform, has been charged with threatening a federal official for allegedly making profanity and misogyny-laced death threats in messages left for Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington announced today.

The complaint alleges that Wilson called Murray’s office multiple times between March 22 — the day after the health bill passed the House — and April 4. In one message, he allegedly said that Murray “had a target on her back.” In another, he allegedly said, “I want to (expletive) kill you.”

The press release from the U.S. attorney continues: “Wilson discussed assisting others in an attempt to kill the senator. Wilson’s threats were in response to the passage of the Health Care Reform Act.” Wilson was arrested this morning.
