BRF woman charged with threatening governor's family

BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A Black River Falls woman is charged with threatening to shoot Gov. Scott Walker's family.

The criminal complaint filed against 52-year-old Dana Sartor called the governor's office April 16 and in slurred speech left a voice mail threatening to shoot Walker's wife and children.

Capitol police investigated and traced the call to Sartor's residence. The complaint says Sartor admitted making the call, but told detectives she had no intention of harming the governor's family. Police say Sartor told investigators she had recently written the governor to tell him she thought he was doing a good job. She told investigators that she didn't know why she made the call.

Court records says Sartor is charged in Jackson County with telephone harassment, a misdemeanor. She's due in Jackson County court Monday morning for her initial appearance.
