Let’s hope this is the first and the last time we hear a story like this: Raymone Hunter Geisel was arrested by federal authorities in Florida for threatening to assassinate Barack Obama. He is being held without bail. The Secret Service found a loaded handgun, knives, dozens of rounds of ammunition, body armor, and a machete in Geisel’s car and hotel room. He was nabbed after a source told the Feds that he made the threat against Obama during a training class for bail bondsmen in Miami last month. Another source claimed he made a similar threat against President Bush. Geisel denies having made the threats.
