Threat to Michigan Senator Investigated, Charges Unlikely
Prosecutors in Leelanau County are looking at whether threats made to the office of U. S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-Lansing) merit charges being pressed.
The Grand Rapids Press reported earlier that the threat was made by telephone to the Michigan senator's Traverse City Office.
The caller, according to police, wanted the democrat to stop illegals from taking jobs in this country. The cited some Jamaicans who were reportedly hired at the Homestead Resort in Leelanau County. A check, though, found no evidence of such hirings.
The call, which was traced back to a cell phone being used by a 61 year old woman in Kasson Township, "referenced employees being shot on sight when they got off the bus if something was not done by the senator," police said in a statement.
The woman was investigated but officials determined she did not have the means to carry out the threat so she was not arrested. A final determination, though, on whether any charges will be filed will come from the prosecutor's office.
