Charles Alan Wilson Was Enraged By Health Care Reform, So He Threatened To Kill His Senator.

Hmmm...I wonder what Wilson watched and listened to...

A central Washington man was so enraged by the passage of federal health care reform that he threatened to kill U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, prosecutors charged Tuesday.
"I want to .... kill you," court documents say Charles Alan Wilson of Selah said in one of his foul-mouthed calls to Murray's office.
"Kill the .... senator! Hang the .... senator! I hope somebody puts a .... bullet between your .... eyes," court documents say he said in another call.
Wilson, 64, was charged Tuesday morning with threatening a federal official. He was undone, in part, by an FBI agent who posed as being with a group that wanted to repeal health-care reform.
FBI agents and local law enforcement arrested him at his home in Selah near Yakima.
Passage of health-care reform inflamed passions throughout the country. Officials from both parties reported threats and vandalism. Wilson may be the first person in country arrested for making such threats, The Associated Press reported.
Murray is a Democrat seeking her fourth term. Her office released a statement saying that after receiving numerous phone calls that included threats of violence from an unidentified individual, the office notified authorities.
