A California man was arrested Wednesday, accused of making threatening phone calls to Speaker Nancy Pelosi over health care reform, The Associated Press reported.

Officials said the man made calls to Pelosi's homes in California and the District of Columbia and even spoke directly with her once. He also allegedly called the business office of Pelosi's husband.

The charges were not disclosed. The suspect was expected to appear in San Francisco federal court Thursday morning, Politico reported.

During the calls, the man recited Pelosi's home address and said if she wanted to see her house again, she would not support health care legislation, according to the AP.

On Tuesday, a Washington state man was charged with threatening to kill Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) because of her "yes" vote on health care legislation. Charges have also been filed against a Pennsylvania man who is accused of posting a video on the Internet in which he threatened Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.).

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.

This should tell our Representatives what we think of their politcs. When Pelosi told every one including God that when the "Health Care Bill" passes!!! She just proved that she knew better than all of us what we need. That is just like bailing out those businesses. Seems like there has been bankrupsies for a long time.
