Tell me again about the peaceful left


In an open records request, the Wisconsin State Journal received 116 pages of threats against Governor Scott Walker, including death threats against him and his family.

“Each time you look in the mirror you see a dead man,” one undated and unsigned email said. “Your days are numbered.”

One email sent March 21, 2011, said there was a bomb in Walker’s office.

“You better shape up and quit changing the law or you will die and kids to if you have any and will be dead,” the message said.

Another email sent to Walker on March 11, 2011, said, “If anyone deserves a bullet in the head, it is you and your ilk.”

The Department of Justice previously released details of threats it investigated that were made against Walker and state lawmakers.

Only one case where a person made threats against Walker or lawmakers has led to charges in Dane County. In that case, a Cross Plains woman emailed death threats to 15 Republican state senators in 2011. She pleaded guilty to making a bomb threat and was placed in a first-offenders program.
