An Illinois Army veteran has been charged in federal court with threatening to kill a Republican congressman.
Rochester resident Randall Tarr, 64, was charged with communicating threats to injure a person and threatening to assault, kidnap, or murder a federal official. The charges stem from a Nov. 25 phone call to Republican Rep. Rodney Davis’s office.
According to court documents, Tarr became enraged after seeing one of the three-term congressman’s commercials. Investigators said he left a voicemail on Davis’s office phone.

“You backing the Russians, boy?” Tarr said. “What’s wrong with you? Are you … so f—ing stupid? I was in the military for eight years, and you son of a bitch, are backing the Russians over our own intelligence?”
“What is wrong with you, Rodney? Oh my God. I’m not voting for you next time. You f—er,” he continued.
