    Default Ted Cruz receives a death threat

    Authorities probe threat against Cruz (Video)

    Law enforcement officials are investigating a threat against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who was vaulted into national prominence with his push to defund ObamaCare.
    A person identifying himself as Troy Gilmore Jr., posted on Twitter Friday morning: “Take down Ted Cruz, at his home” and listed Cruz’s home address in Houston.
    “What goes around comes around CRUZ!!” the person wrote.

    The author of the threat uses the Twitter handle @ArmyVet54 and identifies himself as having served in the U.S. Army and Navy.
    Sean Rushton, Cruz’s spokesman, said, “We’re aware of it and have alerted the proper authorities.”
    “I can’t comment further on security matters,” he said.
    At about 5:30 pm on Friday, @ArmyVet54 posted another apparent threat, urging that Cruz “needs tobe [sic] taught a street wise [sic] lesson”.
    The person posted Cruz's home address several other times this month and repeatedly used threatening language.
    The apparent threats are not directed at any audience in particular because @ArmyVet54 does not have any Twitter followers. But a search of Cruz’s name on Twitter can find them.
    The Capitol Police takes all threats to members of Congress seriously.
    “We are looking into that matter,” said Officer Shennell Antrobus, a spokesman for the Capitol Police.

    Donte Jamar Sims, a 22-year-old man living in North Carolina, was sentenced to six months in prison in May after he threatened over Twitter to kill President Obama during the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
    In June, a judge sentenced Jarvis Britton, a 26-year old Alabama man, to a yearlong prison term after he threatened Obama over Twitter.

    As much as I can't stand Cruz, I don't approve of the death threat.
