E. Stanley Hoff, 68, is accused of leaving a voice mail for the Upper Arlington Republican after the June 14 shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and four others at a GOP congressional baseball practice. The gunman was killed by police.
The voice mail stated: “I’ve seen the prayer ya’ll were saying at the baseball diamond. … I think ya’ll better hit your knees and pray for the people that you’re screwin’ up their lives.
“We’re coming to get every goddamn one of you and your families. Maybe the next one taken down will be your daughter. Huh? Or your wife. Or even you.”
It’s retaliation for…well, something that is sure to happen. Someday. Honest.
