6. Tamarac Man John Kless Accused Of Threatening Members Of Congress

By Joan Murray April 19, 2019 at 6:04 pm

FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – A Tamarac man accused of threatening three Washington lawmakers was arrested and appeared in federal court Friday.

John Kless, 49, was given a $25,000 bond and fitted with an ankle monitor.

According to Federal investigators, Kless left threatening voicemails for three Democrats: Congressman Eric Swallwell of California, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and US Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey.

Prosecutors say the message to Swallwell said, “The day you come after our guns, (expletive), is the day you’ll be dead. Along with everybody in the (expletive) government, (expletive). You want war (expletive) Keep talking like that.”

TAMARAC — A Florida man was arrested and charged Friday with allegedly making a series of threatening phone calls to Democratic officials, in which he ranted in explicitly racist terms about Muslims, black people and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

John Kless, 49, of the Fort Lauderdale area, was charged with making an interstate threat, a crime punishable by up to five years in prison.

Marlene Fernandez-Karavetsos, a spokeswoman for Fajardo Orshan, the U.S. Attorney for Southern Florida, said Kless was expected to be released on a $25,000 bond on Friday afternoon. She said that some weapons owned by him had been seized but declined to give specifics.

“You’re gonna die,” Kless continued, according to the complaint. “You’ll be your death bed...along with all the rest of you Democrats.”

"It was your Taliban bitch, the one who opened up her fucking towel-head mouth about how 'some people did it,'" Kless allegedly said in his message to Tlaib. "You know what? She's lucky she's just getting death threats, bitch. So are you. All right? You're lucky they're just threats, motherfucker, 'cause the day when the bell tolls, whore, and this country comes to a war, there will be no more threats. Your life will be on the fucking line."

Kless allegedly continued to say the following:

No one wants to fucking hear you or that other little whore. I'd like to take that bitch and throw her right off the Empire State Building, that fucking whore. Tell her to shut her fucking mouth. You fucking fuck her all the time probably. So tell her to shut the fuck up, all right? From one towel head to another. You stanking, fucking, smelly, fucking bitch. Fuck off. I wish all of you the worst. You can go fuck off in life. Fuck you, and fuck Mohammed too, you bitch fucking cunt.

Kless also allegedly criticized Swalwell's stance on gun control. Kless reportedly said if Swalwell enacted gun-safety laws, someone would kill the lawmaker. He also called Swalwell a communist and, oddly, the N-word. (Swalwell is white.)

"The day you come after our guns, motherfucker, is the day you'll be dead," Kless said, according to a federal indictment. He added, "You're gonna die. Don't wanna do that shit, boy. You'll be [on] your deathbed, motherfucker, along with the rest of you Democrats. So if you want death, keep that shit up, motherfucker."
