For the second time in as many weeks, Democrats have accused health care opponents of politically-motivated crimes–vandalism at the Democratic Party’s state HQ and even a death threat against Rep. John Salazar.
Thanks to intrepid investigations by PPC and others in the blogosphere, we know how the vandalism story turned out.
Now, police in Grand Junction are telling the public that the allegations of an unnamed suspect threatening Rep. Salazar’s life are “unfounded.”
From Lynn Bartels at the Denver Post:
“People who witnessed the interaction between the man who made the complaint and the suspect confirmed they never heard any direct threats made regarding Congressman Salazar,” said Kate Porras, spokeswoman for the Grand Junction police.
“Also, a (Grand Junction police officer) in close proximity when the interaction took place never heard any direct threats made against Salazar by the suspect,” she said.
Asked whether the person filing the report faced any kind of charge, such as filing a false report, Porras said, “Not at this time. We don’t have any information to show the person who filed the report intentionally gave us false information.”
Figures. Democrat Cries Wolf– Police Find No Evidence to Back Up "Death Threat" Accusation
