First wingnut arrested for threatening Obama


From MSNBC:

A man who authorities said was keeping weapons and military-style gear in his hotel room and car appeared in court Thursday on charges he threatened to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Raymond Hunter Geisel, 22, was arrested by the Secret Service on Saturday in Miami and was ordered held at Miami’s downtown detention center without bail Thursday by a federal magistrate.

A Secret Service affidavit charges that Geisel made the threat during a training class for bail bondsmen in Miami in late July. According to someone else in the 48-member class, Geisel allegedly referred to Obama with a racial epithet and continued, “If he gets elected, I’ll assassinate him myself.”

Wow wee, Only 22 years old. Somehow I thought it would be an older guy. One thing to keep in mind..this wingnut also hated George Bush: “he hated George W. Bush and that he wanted to put a bullet in the president’s head,”- Secret Service said. Of course that could be horseshit..we dunno.
