The Man Who Threatened Nancy Pelosi Cried In Court

April 8, 2010

Gregory Lee Giusti appeared in court today after his arrest for making dozens of threatening phone calls to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home and her husband’s office.

Officials have stated that Giusti recited her home address during the calls and said if she wanted to see it again, she would not support the health care overhaul bill that since has been enacted.

Apparently this man was upset of the health care reform bill.  You have to wonder why and who incites this kind of rage and fear to begin with.  I have a fairly good idea.

Giusti wept in court during his appearance.

Gregory Lee Giusti, 48, of San Francisco looked disheveled in a gray T-shirt and khakis as he appeared for the first time before Magistrate Judge Bernard Zimmerman.

Some of these threats are very serious,” Zimmerman said before denying Giusti’s request to be released to the halfway house. He said Giusti may suffer from bipolar disorder and should be receiving treatment.

The magistrate, however, told the U.S. attorney’s office to interview Giusti further to determine if he was mentally competent enough to be released to a halfway house or if he should continue to be detained

Giusti is charged with making obscene, threatening or harassing phone calls to a member of Congress.

Giusti is accused of making the calls to Pelosi because of anger over health care reform. He was arrested Wednesday at a single-room occupancy public housing complex in San Francisco where he lived for the past nine years.

If convicted, Giusti could receive a two-year prison sentence, $250,000 fine and one year of supervised release.

It’s just my opinion but isn’t that sentence rather lenient?  Is he considered a patriot?  I’m having difficulties with the new definition of ‘patriot’ that’s been overused recently.

    Look at the picture of Nancy. Is that not the fakest looking smile you have ever seen. She looks medicated too. I would like to take some of her pills she seems so happy.

    Rebel – I’ll have to disagree with you. NO ONE EVER explains things to people like Marin adequately!! ;-)

    @ Martin Chris and Hank have done a fine job explaining things to you. I just have one point to add to their remarks about Healthcare.

    65% of Americans are opposed to the bill that was passed. If the bill had been up for a vote by the US Citizens it would not have passed. It was rammed down our throats.

    Yes Obama ran on Healthcare reform and he was voted into office. The problem is that ………HE LIED ABOUT HEALTHCARE. HE’S A LYING LIAR.
