A 62-year-old Tennessee man left two messages on the voicemail of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) on the evening of Oct. 27, saying he was going to destroy Cantor, rape his daughter and kill his wife, the FBI reported in a press release.

Glendon Swift of Lenoir City, Tenn., was arrested by FBI agents on Wednesday and faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted. He made a preliminary appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge C. Clifford Shirley Jr. in Knoxville on Thursday.

“Threatening to harm the family of a public official is a very serious charge, and we are grateful to the FBI and their law enforcement partners for their quick action in this case,“ U.S. Attorney Neil H. MacBride said in announcing the arrest.

Swift was traced as the registrant of the phone number the call was made from. He admitted to the arresting officers he had made the call.
