Wisconsin School Teacher Charged With Sending Death Threats To Republican Lawmakers
A 26 year old Cross Plains woman named Katherine Windels was charged Thursday with sending threatening emails to Republican lawmakers.
The criminal complaint said Windels admitted sending the emails because she was: "disgusted and very upset by what they were doing."
Windels' social media pages say she is an elementary school teacher in Madison.
The criminal complaint said Windels threatened to kill Republicans and their families in her email, and said she would shoot them in the head.
"Me being a father of two small children; it was very upsetting to me," Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald said.
Fitzgerald received several threats during the chaos at the Capitol. He is a very strong supporter of Governor Walker's controversial Collective Bargaining Law, which strips most collective bargaining rights from state employed union workers.
Fitzgerald is relieved Windels was charged, but said that's not the end of it. He received another death threat on Thursday.http://www.todaystmj4.com/news/local/119035264.html
