Default Authorities looking into threat against Texas Sen. Ted Cruz

So let's leave it alone, 'cause we can't see eye to eye.
There ain't no good guys, there ain't no bad guys.
There's only you and me and we just disagree.



Authorities looking into threat against Texas Sen. Ted Cruz

Quote:
Law enforcement officials are investigating a threat against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who was vaulted into national prominence with his push to defund ObamaCare.

A person identifying himself as Troy Gilmore Jr., posted on Twitter Friday morning: “Take down Ted Cruz, at his home” and listed Cruz’s home address in Houston.

“What goes around comes around CRUZ!!” the person wrote.

The author of the threat uses the Twitter handle @ArmyVet54 and identifies himself as having served in the U.S. Army and Navy.

Sean Rushton, Cruz’s spokesman, said, “We’re aware of it and have alerted the proper authorities.”

“I can’t comment further on security matters,” he said.

At about 5:30 pm on Friday, @ArmyVet54 posted another apparent threat, urging that Cruz “needs tobe [sic] taught a street wise [sic] lesson”.

The person posted Cruz's home address several other times this month and repeatedly used threatening language.

Still, it's not right to threaten those with whom you have disagreements. I don't like what Ted Cruz tried to do with the shutdown and the far-right ideological tempter tantrum he helped create. Certainly though we can agree its not worth going to jail, or getting a friendly visit from the Secret Service for threatening a lawmaker over Twitter.

Nope, Obama's death panels will fudge his medical records and deem him unfit for treatment, and will recommend that he be put on a fast-track list for euthanasia.

That might be the reason he tried to change Obamacare so that Congress would be covered.....


seriously though, I don't like his politics but death threats or threats of any harm to him or his family are just not good. I hope they catch those responsible.
