Man admits to threatening Gov. Kim Reynolds in anti-mask tirade

An Iowa man who left a threatening voicemail telling Gov. Kim Reynolds she should be hung or shot “for treason” for imposing COVID-19 restrictions has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor harassment charge.

Harvey Hunter Jr., 48, pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree harassment, accepting a plea agreement offered by Polk County prosecutors.

In a written guilty plea, he said that he “did threaten to commit bodily injury to a government official" in his Jan. 5 voicemail.

Prosecutors will recommend that Hunter serve one year of probation, pay a fine, have no contact with the governor and undergo a mental health evaluation.

2. You're welcome.

I tried to post the photo of the man accused, but I couldn't hotlink to the photo. It will be interesting to see what the mental health exam reveals.
