ObamaNut threatens to kill Rep. Cantor and family
Posted by Laura Ingraham
Breaking news out of Philadelphia:

[The FBI filed] a two-count complaint and warrant charging Norman Leboon with threatening to kill United States Congressman Eric Cantor and his family.

As we've attempted to remind the dinosaur media (currently obsessed with Tea Party violence they can't find), there are nuts on every side. It will be interesting to see MSNBC spin this news, if it even covers it. The likes of Schuster, Olbermann, and Matthews will probably paint Leboon as an irrational, mentally-troubled individual who...wait a second--donated $505 to Obama?

Via Newsmeat:

Leboon, Norman Sr
Philadelphia, PA 19149

Leboon, Norman Sr
Philadelphia, PA 19149

primary 06/20/08

UPDATE: Looks like Dem rhetoric incited Leboon to a little legal "violence."

UPDATE: Remember what the inciter-in-chief said on the campaign trail in Philadelphia July 2008?
"If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."
In the YouTube video featuring his threat against the Republican congressman, Leboon said Cantor will "receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer's abominations."

UPDATE: Some caution may be in order:
There's some confusion about whether the LeBoon in the videos is LeBoon "senior" or "junior" (or even whether a "Norman LeBoon Jr." exists) and it's not clear whether the "Norman LeBoon" of Philadelphia listed in the campaign finance disclosure database that JWF links is the same one charged by the FBI.
UPDATE: DNC will give Cantor threat suspect's donations to charity
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) said Monday that it will donate money it had received from a man charged with threatening to kill a top Republican.

A DNC official said it was researching contributions made by Norman Leboon, a Philadelphia man charged Monday with threatening to kill House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.), and donate any money he had donated to charity.

"We are researching the matter, and any donations made to the DNC or the Obama campaign by Mr. Leboon will be donated to charity," a DNC official said.

Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings show that Leboon had made two, separate donations to then-Sen. Barack Obama's (D-Ill.) presidential campaign. The two donations, made in June of 2008, total $505. These are the only federal contributions on record for Leboon.
