Russell Hesch, 73, of West Branch, Mi., a known critic of Stupak, allegedly wrote the threatening letter and then sent it to his son David Hesch, 50 of Loveland, Colo. who mailed it to Stupak’s office in Menomie, Mi., the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

The Detroit Free Press reported that Stupak told investigators he had met Hesch on several occasions and he was “historically most vocal and critical constituents.”

The paper reports that “bricks have been hurled through Democrats’ windows, a propane line was cut at the home of a congressman’s brother, and threatening voice mails and faxes have been sent to some Democratic lawmakers.”
