AUGUSTA — The Maine Heritage Policy Center Friday received a series of threats by phone, as a result of our reporting on Rep. Chuck Kruger’s Twitter statements supporting the execution of former Vice President Dick Cheney.
The threats were made in three separate phone calls, and may be from the same caller, attempting to change his voice each time.
The caller acknowledges our report on Kruger, and concurs with the sentiment from Kruger’s twitter comments.
“A lot of people think Cheney is a war criminal and he should be executed, because he is a war criminal.”
The caller, after digressing into an angry series of profanities, becomes more aggressive.
“We are happy, happy, happy to go to it with you, just be aware, you started it, and we’ll be happy to finish it.”
“You might as well plaster a [expletive] target on everybody.”
