Man Arrested for Cantor Threats

Eric Cantor was derided last week for claiming he had been threatened after a bullet broke a window in his campaign office—an incident police said was completely random. This time, however, it looks as though the threat was real: The FBI has arrested a Philadelphia man who posted a YouTube video threatening Cantor and his family. "Remember Eric... our judgment time, the final Yom Kippur has been given. You are a liar, you're a Lucifer, you're a pig, a greedy fucking pig, you're an abomination, you receive my bullets,” Norman Leboon said in the online video. The 33-year-old Leboon faces a maximum of 15 years in prison.
