A man is being held in Florida by federal authorities on charges of threatening to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.Geisel should expect to see the book thrown at him.
Raymond Hunter Geisel was ordered held without bail Thursday at a brief court hearing.
The Secret Service says Geisel made the threat during a training class for bail bondsmen in Miami in late July. Another tipster said Geisel also threatened President Bush.
A search of Geisel's SUV and hotel room uncovered a loaded handgun, knives, dozens of rounds of ammunition, body armor and a machete. The SUV was wired with emergency lights.
Ace points out that Bob Owens found that CNN edited the AP wire report eliminating references to the fact that Geisel has made threats against President Bush as well. CNN conveniently underplayed that salient point. Nice. This guy was an equal opportunity threat, but the media wants to portray him as a right wing wacko.
Stay classy media.
