Assemblyman James Tedisco is one of the local lawmakers that have received this suspicious, threatening emails from an unknown sender. The email is as follows:Assemblyman Tedisco is a Republican.
"It is obvious to me that the wealthy in this country are so well insulated that nothing will pull them off task and that, in order to deal with them, I need to incite people to violence. In a day where those in power are bold enough to eliminate labor unions and the government conducts surveillance on Americans whenever they speak out, the response must be violence. When broadcast and print journalists do the bidding for those in power and side against unions and the working class in favor of pro-corporate nonsense, it is obvious that they too must be the target of violence as well.
...At first I thought I might pull out a gun at my State office and kill a bunch of these dummies that I work with. But I doubt that would provide me with the satisfaction I am looking for. Understand with whom you are dealing. I am not crazy. I am a terrorist. I stand for all of the people who don't have a voice. Truly, I hope the Governor harms and enrages a great many people. They will supply soldiers for my war.
If we attack a school bus full of kids, it may have no effect on the hardened criminals who rule Albany, but it will put the public in an uproar.Our goal is to create anarchy. You'll have to kill us to stop us.
There is one legislator who should immediately recognize the writer of this message because 3 years ago, I spoke to him in person and warned him about these very topics, including the school attacks. But you know what - I bet he wasn't paying attention. We're going to get his attention. Come visit my agency. Give me a chance to pull a Gabby Giffords."
