News that the state Justice Department has identified one suspect in connection with death threats sent to Republican state senators comes as at least a minor relief to Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend).
“They caught someone? Good,” he said Friday night. “I am waiting to hear the background of the type of person who would do such a devious thing.”
The suspect admitted to writing two e-mails, threatening to kill Gov. Scott Walker and members of the Senate, according to a press release from the department. Grothman told Patch that he was among those who received a threat.
