PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A Philadelphia man has been sentenced to two years in prison for threatening U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia in a YouTube video.
Federal prosecutors say 38-year-old Norman LeBoon was sentenced Thursday to 24 months in prison followed by three years' supervised release. He pleaded guilty in November in connection with the YouTube video posted earlier that year.
Prosecutors say LeBoon called the Republican congressman "a liar" and "a Lucifer" in the video and vowed to shoot him:
"My Congressman Eric Cantor, and you and your cupcake evil wife ... . Remember Eric ... our judgment time, the final Yom Kippur has been given. You are a liar, you're a Lucifer, you're a pig, a greedy f------ pig, you're an abomination, you receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer's abominations."
LeBoon will be required to get mental health treatment. He is also required to have no contact with Cantor or any member of Cantor's family.
The videos Leboon has on YouTube paint a picture of a deranged man who considers himself a god:
Cantor was voted House majority leader when the Republican-led Congress convened in January.
