    Default WI woman charged with making death threats against lawmakers.

    Funny, the paper never identifies her as a student, gov't worker, activist, union member or left wing fringe nut... You can bet your bottom dollar if they had the chance to tag it the other way they would...

    Cross Plains woman charged with sending death threats to lawmakers
    Sixteen Republicans were warned they, families would be killed after vote on union measure

    Madison A 26-year-old woman was charged Thursday with two felony counts and two misdemeanor counts accusing her of making email threats against Wisconsin lawmakers during the height of the battle over Gov. Scott Walker's budget-repair bill.

    Katherine R. Windels of Cross Plains was named in a criminal complaint filed in Dane County Circuit Court.

    According to the criminal complaint, Windels sent an email threat to state Sen. Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) on March 9, the day the Senate passed a measure to sharply curtail collective bargaining for public workers. Later that evening, she sent another email to 15 Republican legislators, including Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau), the complaint says.

    The subject of the second email was: "Atten.: Death Threat!!!! Bomb!!!" In that email, she purportedly wrote, "Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your families will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks."

    "I hope you have a good time in hell," she allegedly wrote in the lengthy email that listed scenarios in which the legislators and their families would die, including bombings and by "putting a nice little bullet in your head."

    According to the complaint, Windels told investigators, "I sent out emails that I was disgusted and very upset by what they were doing." Asked if she intended to follow through, Windels said, "No," according to the complaint.

    Windels was charged with two felony counts of "bomb scare" and two misdemeanor counts of "computer message-threatening injury/bodily harm." Each felony count carries a maximum penalty of three years and six months in prison and a $10,000 fine, and each misdemeanor count carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in prison and a $1,000 fine.

    Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne, a Democrat, filed charges just hours after Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen's office expressed concern he'd not done so. Lawyers for Ozanne and Van Hollen are on opposite sides of a case Ozanne filed alleging the collective bargaining law was improperly adopted and should be voided.

    WKOW-TV in Madison reported Windels was not in custody. She was expected to be served Friday, with her first court appearance in late April, according to the station's website.

    According to her myspace page she is a teacher. Notice the media efused to mention that fact. What a great example fo the kids.
    Here is the link so Rog and little Rog don't accuse of making things up since of course a teacher would never do such a thing.
