Coon Rapids man charged with threatening US senator

MINNEAPOLIS — A federal grand jury has returned an indictment against a Coon Rapids man for making interstate threats against a U.S. senator.

According to court documents from June 11, 2022, 35 years old Brendon Daugherty left two voicemails on a US Senator’s field office phone outside of Minnesota. Both messages contained threats of violence directed at the US senator.

In his first message, Daugherty said, “You and the Republican Party should be proud that you are pushing me to become a domestic terrorist. Have a good [expletive] daytime; I can’t wait to kill you.

In his second post, Daugherty said, “I also just wanted to note, thank goodness the Republican Party is against gun control laws because it would keep guns out of the hands of a disabled person. and unstable like me, but you guys are totally against that. So maybe I can achieve my nefarious goals.

Field office personnel reported them to the United States Capitol Police.

On September 2, 2022, FBI special agents spoke to Daugherty at his home in Coon Rapids. Daugherty told officers he called the U.S. senator because the U.S. senator is “doing a bunch of stupid [expletive] with gun control,” and that he wants politicians to “feel a bit under pressure.

Daughter is charged with one count of threatening to murder a U.S. official and one count of interstate transmission of a threat.
