Laurence Wayne Key, a volunteer for the Democratic Party of Martin County, Florida, has been arrested after he allegedly made a call to Rep. Brian Mast’s (R-Fla.) Washington, D.C., office and threatened to kill his kids over the situation at the border.
WPTV reported Key made his comments to the intern who answered the phone.
“I’m going to find the congressman’s kids and kill them,” Key said. “If you’re going to separate kids at the border, I’m going to kill his kids. Don’t try to find me because you won’t.”
Key was found and arrested shortly after the intern reported the call to their supervisor, who then notified the FBI.
According to his Facebook profile, Key was very active in the local Democratic Party. His banner picture showed his support for Planned Parenthood.
He has also expressed a strong dislike for President Donald Trump:
WPTV further reported Key denied he threatened to kill Mast’s children but said if Mast did support separating undocumented immigrant families, then Mast should be separated from his children as well. He had also called Mast’s office 478 times.
Key is currently in jail awaiting his bond hearing.
