An Ohio man who believed John Boehner to be the devil deserving of death because he is “mean” and “responsible for the Ebola virus” has been indicted by a federal grand jury for trying to poison the House Speaker.
According to USA Today, Michael Hoyt of Deer Park, Ohio called police back in October, 2014, claiming that he wanted to kill Boehner by poisoning his drinks at a country club where Hoyt bartended for the Republican lawmaker.
Local authorities, the FBI and Capitol Police began an investigation that resulted in the indictment against Hoyt.
“Hoyt has imagined and believes John Boehner is the devil, and Hoyt believes he is Jesus Christ,” Chistopher Desrosiers, a special agent with the Capitol Police, said in the court documents.
“Hoyt also believes Boehner is responsible for the Ebola virus.”
