(NewsGlobal.com)- Nancy Pelosi has received a distressing number of death threats.
A South Dakota man will serve two years on probation after threatening to assassinate the congresswoman.
According to court documents, Larry Grueschow of Armour contacted Pelosi in June 2020 and threatened to murder her.
Grueschow pled guilty in January. He must also pay a nominal sum of $100 in addition to probation.
In December of 2021, in an emotional hearing, a Georgia man who traveled across the country with an assault weapon and threatened to kill House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was sentenced to 28 months in prison.
Cleveland Meredith Jr. pled guilty to transmitting threatening messages. Meredith was one of the first persons prosecuted in connection with the January 6 riot. His mother reported suspicious messages to the FBI on January 7. He missed January 6 due to automobile problems. Meredith was discovered with hundreds of rounds of ammo, a revolver, and an assault weapon stowed in his trailer in a motel one mile from the Capitol.
In April of 2022, a Florida man was sentenced to 18 months in jail for making threatening phone calls to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, threatening to behead her.
In January, Paul Vernon Hoeffer, 60, of Palm Beach Gardens, admitted to threatening Democratic politicians and Cook County prosecutor Kim Foxx in a series of phone calls between 2019 and 2020.
According to court documents, Pelosi, D-Calif., was his initial target. He threatened to “come to a long, long distance to rattle her skull with gunshots” if she didn’t resign. He threatened to cut off her head “jihadist-style” in another.
The FBI tracked down his phone number and visited Hoeffer’s house, warning him to stop. Prosecutors said Hoeffer, who owns a towing company, apologized and promised the agents that “he would not continue to make calls of this sort.”
However, in November 2020, he sent a threatening letter to Cortez’s office, threatening to decapitate her and instructing her to “keep one eye open while you sleep,” according to court documents.
In November of 2021, a jury found an Arizona man guilty of threatening to assassinate House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a week after rioters seized the Capitol building.
Steven Arthus Martis, 77, of Bullhead City, was convicted guilty of transmitting an interstate threat to assassinate House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Martis left two voicemails to Pelosi’s office in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 17. In one voicemail message, Martis claimed, “I’m going to murder you,” and in another, “You’re dead…” According to prosecutors, the FBI had previously told Martis to stop making threatening phone calls.
Pelosi has perennially earned the title of the most hated politician.
Even a poll from 2013 said she had previously held the title for years.
