WI Teacher Pleads Not Guilty to Threatening to Murder GOP Senators & Bombing Their Homes
Not guilty pleas have been entered for a Wisconsin woman charged with making death threats to Republican state lawmakers.
Katherine Windels, 26, stood mute Thursday in Dane County Circuit Court. A court commissioner entered the pleas for her to two misdemeanor counts of making threats over a computer.
She has also been charged with two felony counts of making bomb threats.
A criminal complaint alleges Windels threatened to shoot the senators and plant bombs around their houses and the Capitol because of their votes in favor of a bill curtailing collective bargaining rights for most state employees.
The complaint also reveals that Windels told investigators she didn’t intend to carry out any of her threats. Windels allegedly told authorities that she was simply angry when she sent two emails to the 15 Republican state senators on March 9.
Hat Tip Tim
I am reprinting verbatim an email that was sent to Republican senators. The email was signed, but I have deleted the name pending what I hope will be a thorough police investigation.
