New Motherf–g Tone: Wisconsin Woman Arrested for Death Threats to Republicans

Who knew “civility” was a felony in Wisconsin?

A 26-year-old woman was charged Thursday with two felony counts and two misdemeanor counts for allegedly making email threats against Wisconsin lawmakers during the height of the battle over Gov. Scott Walker’s budget-repair bill.
Katherine R. Windels of Cross Plains was named in a criminal complaint filed in Dane County Criminal Court.
According to the criminal complaint, Windels allegedly sent an email threat to State Sen. Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) March 9. Later that evening, she allegedly sent another email to 15 Republican legislators, including Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau).
The subject line of the second email was: “Atten: Death Threat!!!! Bomb!!!” In that email, she purportedly wrote, “Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your families will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks.”
“I hope you have a good time in hell,” she allegedly wrote in the lengthy email in which she purportedly listed scenarios in which the legislators and their families would die, including bombings and by “putting a nice little bullet in your head.”

The Underground Conservative reports that Windels is — wait for it — a pre-school teacher. Charlie Sykes at Milwaukee talk radio station WTMJ had complained that the district attorney’s office was dragging its feet in investigating death threats against Wisconsin Republicans. (Via Memeorandum.)

In other “civility” news, The Underground Conservative reports on a Milwaukee County employee (and AFSCME activist) who apparently used his work computer to call the blogger a “f–ing a–hole.”

UPDATE: Ann Althouse reports that AFSCME is resorting to protection-racket tactics, demanding that businesses put up pro-union signs.

Organized labor and organized crime: There’s a difference?

UPDATE II: Underground Conservative now has his own Memeorandum thread, with commentary by  Another Black Conservative, American Glob, Pat Dollard, Weasel Zippers, and Sister Toldjah
