Share this post

A New Castle, Indiana man has been charged with threatening to kill House Speaker John Boehner, angry over Congress's failure to extend unemployment insurance. ABC News reports the FBI says 32-year-old Brandon Thompson not only sent the speaker a threatening email, he called John Boehner's wife and left threatening voicemails. In one, Thompson allegedly said, "I'm coming after your oompa loompa ... husband. He shoulda extended unemployment insurance." Indiana officials say Thompson had been receiving unemployment checks ... until they ran out in January.
