Two downstate men are arrested for conspiring to threaten Congressman Bart Stupak.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Bay City says the two men are 73-year-old Russell Hesch of downstate West Branch and his son, 50-year-old David Hesch of Loveland, Colorado.
Court documents say Stupak’s office in Menominee received a letter about two weeks ago.
The letter apparently threatened the Congressman, his wife and their son.
The threats were allegedly related to Stupak’s vote for the health care reform bill.
A lawyer for Russell Hesch tells the Associated Press his client is not guilty.
