FOX 31’s Eli Stokols:
David A. Cassidy of Denver was charged last week with one count of attempt to influence an public servant, a felony, and one count of harassment, a misdemeanor, both stemming from a phone call he made to state Sen. Andy Kerr, D-Lakewood.
On the night of Monday, March 4, as Senate lawmakers heard public testimony on seven gun control bills as opponents packed the Capitol and blared their horns, Kerr returned home and listened to a message from Cassidy, 59, on his cell phone.
You and the rest of the communist Democrats down there are gonna regret what youвЂ™re doing,вЂќ Cassidy said. вЂњEither by ballots or by bullets, we are going to get you out of office.вЂќ [Pols emphasis]
Stokols reports that after David Cassidy was contacted by police, he left another message, attempting to explain that his prior message was not meant as a threat:
вЂњIt wasnвЂ™t a threat, I was trying to warn you,вЂќ Cassidy said. вЂњOur country has a history of revolution and it could come down to that and you may be pushing it to that.вЂќ
In fact our country has less of a “history of revolution” than, well, most other countries, as we’ve really only had one “revolution,” well in excess of two hundred years ago. It does seem on balance, however, that Mr. Cassidy was perhaps not quite as malicious with Sen. Andy Kerr as Franklin Sain was in his threats against Rep. Rhonda Fields. It’s possible this is because Sen. Kerr is not a black woman, but probably we shouldn’t speculate.
One other helpful detail noted by FOX 31’s Stokols:
Officers who visited CassidyвЂ™s home on March 8, four days after his first phone call to Kerr, also noticed a вЂњRocky Mountain Gun OwnersвЂќ bumper sticker on his truck.
Now that should be the least surprising part of the whole story, folks.
