A Lewisburg man was arrested today following a phone conversation where he allegedly threatened to harm a women caller and "every Republican" that came across his path.

The woman was calling people in the Lewisburg area on behalf of Republican Niel Kerr and his race for Commonwealth Attorney.

According to a uniform citation, Wesley Shawn Johnson, 54, answered the telephone and when told about the candidate by the woman caller, he said: "Republicans were putting babies in blankets and killing them."

Johnson further stated, according to the woman caller, that he knew where she worked and that she supported Republicans and would be the first person he came after.

The caller contacted the Logan County Sheriff's Department.

When deputies arrived at the home of Johnson, they smelled a strong odor of alcohol on him. He denied the call ever took place and told deputies they could check the caller ID. According to the citation, the caller ID showed a call coming in that matched the time frame the caller stated.

Johnson's mother said her son was out of depression medication and refused to go back to the doctor. His mother further stated her son was a "die-hard Democrat and believed America was going to hell in a hand-basket."

Johnson is being charged with menacing and terroristic threatening 3rd degree.
