The Pennsylvania man who allegedly threatened Senator Jim Bunning via e-mail is expected to plead not guilty today, says Bluegrass Politics:

Bruce Shore, an unemployed sales representative, said he sent an angry e-mail to Bunning’s office in February after Bunning single-handedly blocked a vote to extend unemployment benefits for several days.

In the e-mail, which Shore provided to the Herald-Leader, he asked if Bunning was “insane” and told him that “no checks equal no food for me.”

“If this political grandstanding does not end today — we will come to your offices and make our point. You are playing a life and death game here. Do you get it.” he wrote in all capital letters. He signed the letter Brad Shore.

The full article has Shore’s response and points out that Bunning’s offices were inundated at the time with complaints.
