A Seattle man is facing charges after he allegedly sent threatening emails to Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel and Court Commissoner Linda Georgeson.
Adam David Kane, 37, was charged in on Monday with one count of threat to cause bodily harm to a judge and two counts of unlawful use of a computerized communication system. If convicted, he faces up to 6 ½ years in prison and $12,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
Kane’s wife, who lives in Wisconsin, filed a restraining order against her husband on May 9 in Waukesha County Circuit Court due to concerns about his erratic behavior raised in an April email he sent to her. Commissioner Georgeson granted the restraining order on May 23.
Kane then sent a threatening email to Schimel titled "SUCK IT WISCONSIN" where he talked of sodomizing Schimel with a broom handle while forcing Gov. Scott Walker and Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to watch. He then said he no longer fears "death nor pain," and signed it "Warmest Regards, Adam D. Kane."
He also sent an email with the directions to "please forward to Judge GEORGESON of the Waukesha County courthouse (sic)" where he threatened to kill her if her could "ever get close enough." The email’s last sentence reads "Thank you for your attention to this matter!!!!"
Kane sent a third email where he called Schimel his "favorite, Mr. Pole Smoker" and bragged about a past incident where he was stunned with a Taser by tactical police officers and "yet I’m still going strong."
Kane went on to thank Schimel to "promote and develop a COP KILLER," then finished the letter by writing "Getty up! Warmest Regards, Adam Kane."
A fourth email was sent to the officials where Kane called them "no talent (expletive) clowns," then accused Schimel, Walker and Van Hollen of being anti-American. He then said of Walker: "I bet you would (expletive) a guy in the (expletive) and not even give him the common decency of a reach around."
A final email sent to Schimel that read "Do you wonder where I am when your (sic) walking to your car at night??" The fourth email prompted Schimel to contact police about safety concerns.
A warrant has been issued for Kane's arrest.
