Michigan man accused of calling, emailing threats over election results
LANSING, Mich. -- A Michigan man has been charged for phone calls, voice mails and emails sent to US Sen. Debbie Stabenow and US Rep. Elissa Slotkin because he was angry over the results of the November election, according to the Michigan Attorney General’s Office.
Daniel Thompson, 62, of Harrison, has been charged with three counts of malicious use of service provided by a telecommunications service provider.
Thompson is accused of using vulgar language and threatening violence in a voice mail left for US Sen. Debbie Stabenow on January 5. Thompson stated he was angry about the results of the November election, that he joined a Michigan militia and that there would be violence if the election results were not changed, reports said.
He made similar remarks in an email to Stabenow’s office, according to the AG’s office.
Thompson also spoke with a member of US Rep. Elissa Slotkin’s office on January 19 where he claimed people would die and used violent references while noting events that happened at the US Capitol building on January 5, reports said.
The third count involves a threatening call to Rep. Slotkin on April 30, 2020, reports said.
Thompson’s arraignment is pending.
