Man sentenced for threatening Cantor
(CNN) -- A Philadelphia man was sentenced on Thursday to 24 months in prison for threatening to kill the No. 2 Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, prosecutors said.

After his prison term, Norman LeBoon will have three years of supervised release, which will include home detention, no internet access, mental health treatment and drug testing.

LeBoon, 38, pleaded guilty in November in U.S. District Court to threatening Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia and a member of his family through a YouTube video he produced and transmitted on March 26, 2010.

Besides the charge of threatening a federal official, LeBoon was sentenced for transmitting via interstate commerce a threatening communication, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania said in a statement.

1. Seems rather harsh. You have to figure that damn near EVERYONE in Cantor's HS wanted to kill him.
He's basically the dweeb asshole from hell.
