Man Arrested for Threatening Pelosi Was Riled Up by Fox News, Says Mom


Gregory Giusti was easily swayed by people with vitriolic, radical ideas, his mother said on the day that he first appeared in court on charges that he made repeated calls to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at her home and seemingly threatened her life over her support of health-care reform. “Greg frequently gets in with a group of people that have really radical ideas … which gets him into problems,” she told local station KGO-TV. “I say Fox News, or all of those that are really radical, and he, that’s where he comes from.” We weren’t sure whether or not to believe this, but then we read that during his first public appearance, while appealing to the court, Giusti openly wept. That’s a Glenn Beck man right there.
