The FBI affidavit said Marconi, after complaining about Casey “going against our President,” stated in one of the calls: “Hello Casey, you are going to pay for this ... What the hell are you in office for, to go against President Obama?”
In a subsequent telephone message the same day, the affidavit said Marconi had admitted being angry during an earlier call to the senator’s office, saying, in part: “You don’t think people are planning things right now. There is going to be war right here in America. That’s right ... we got weapons ... we got a lot of things, bombs. It’s easy to make a bomb ...”
Marconi was arrested by the FBI on Sept. 22. She was ordered by a federal magistrate in October to undergo a psychological examination and mental health treatment at a federal prison for a period not to exceed four months.
Last month, Marconi, was found by a federal magistrate to be competent to stand trial. She was released on $10,000 unsecured bond while prosecutors determined whether to charge her.
Marconi was charged Wednesday by criminal information, a process that generally indicates a plea deal is in the works.
