Man arrested for threatening Dems, citing Omar comments

Authorities have announced the arrest of a South Florida man who is accused of making threatening phone calls to three Democratic lawmakers earlier this week in which he lashed out at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).

The U.S. Capitol Police said that 49-year-old John Kless of Broward County, Fla., left threatening voicemails with the offices of Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) as well as Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).

Kless mentioned Omar in all three messages, according to police, calling her a “towel head” and member of the Taliban and referencing recent comments she made about the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The Capitol Police told The Hill it does not comment on ongoing investigations. Details of the allegations were filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida and dated Thursday.

"It was your Taliban bitch, the one who opened up her f---ing towel head mouth about how 'some people did it,' " authorities say Kless said in his message to Tlaib, who along with Omar is one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress.

"You know what? She's lucky she's just getting death threats, bitch. So are you. All right? You're lucky they're just threats. Motherf---er. 'Cuz the day when the bell tolls, whore, and this country comes to a war, there will be no more threats. Your life will be on the f---ing line."
