John Murtagh Target Of Ayers Death Threat

From the NY Daily News:

    John Murtagh, a Yonkers city councilman and GOP state Senate candidate, [said] "Barack Obama's friend tried to kill my family," he Said Murtagh.

    Murtagh was referring to a 1970 firebombing of his family's upper Manhattan home, when his father, New York State Supreme Court Justice John Murtagh, was presiding at a trial of Black Panther radicals.

    The Weather Underground was suspected in the attack, although no one was caught.

    "Barack Obama may have been a child when William Ayers was plotting attacks against U.S. targets - but I was one of those targets," Murtagh said in the statement.

See, it's okay to have friends that are or were terrorists, as long as you're a Democrat. It's the same same double standard that allows Democrats to have former KKK members in their party for decades.
