Republican Congressman and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was the recipient of anti-semitic slurs and threats on his family.
The FBI says a man from Tennessee has been charged with threatening the family of Virginia Congressman and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
62-year-old Glendon Swift is accused of leaving two voicemail messages at Cantor's office in suburban Richmond last Thursday. The caller reportedly used an anti-semitic slur and said he was going to destroy the Majority Leader, rape his daughter and kill his wife.]
The FBI says Swift was arrested yesterday. He made a preliminary appearance before a U.S. Magistrate judge in Knoxville Thursday. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison if convicted.
A Cantor spokeswoman said the congressman had no comment on the threats.
