Florida Man Arrested In Obama Assassination Threat

I just have the sickest feeling that we’re going to be hearing about more of these.

A man is being held in Florida on charges he threatened to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, according to court documents. An affidavit filed by a Secret Service agent in U.S. District Court claims that Raymond Hunter Geisel, of Marathon, Florida, threatened to “kill, kidnap and cause bodily harm upon a major candidate for president of the United States, that is, Senator Barack Obama.”

The affidavit says Geisel made the threats while attending a bail bondsman training class in Miami. During an interview with the Secret Service, Geisel denied threatening Obama, but told agents that “if he wanted to kill Senator Obama he would simply shoot him with a sniper rifle.” He later said that comment was a joke, the agent said in the document.

OK, so it appears to have just been a verbal threat, a “joke”, and not an actual plan. But you know there will be many Freeper posts cheering this creep.
