SHOCK:  A Washington D.C. police officer who worked as a motorcycle escort for White House officials was moved to administrative duties Wednesday after he was allegedly heard saying he would kill First Lady Michelle Obama and what kind of gun he would use. The officer was a part of the Metropolitan Police Department’s Special Operations Division. Yeah, one wingnut who got too close to the First Family.

The police department’s Internal Affairs Division is investigating the alleged comments and notified the U.S. Secret Service Wednesday, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to give details of the investigation.

The motorman allegedly made the comments Wednesday morning as several officers from the Special Operations Division discussed threats against the Obamas. It was not immediately clear where the alleged conversation took place or exactly how many officers took part in the conversation.

During that conversation, the officials said, the officer allegedly said he would shoot the First Lady and then used his phone to retrieve a picture of the firearm he said he would use. It was not immediately clear what type of firearm was allegedly shown. Source

Yep, all the crazies are coming out of the woodwork with the election just months away. Please tell us this wingnut’s name. Shouldn’t this officer have been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation and not on desk duty?
