Ohio Highway Patrol Investigating Threats To Lawmakers

Dec 7, 2012


Several Republican state legislators aren’t saying much about some threats they received in September.

Jay Hottinger, one of the targets, says there’s good reason they’re being tight-lipped --- the highway patrol is investigating. Here’s what he told statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen.

The threatening letters to State Representative Jay Hottinger and 5 other Republicans came from a group that called itself the “Army of the 12 Monkeys." That could be a reference to a 1995 film "12 Monkeys," set in a post-apocalyptic future where a terrorist organization is believed to have released a lethal virus.
