John Boehner’s former bartender, Michael Robert Hoyt, has been indicted for threatening to poison the Speaker to death by spiking his drink, or shooting him to death.

Hoyt, 44, was indicted on January 7, for threatening to murder the Republican Speaker of the House in October of last year, according to the FBI. Hoyt cooked up the idea while working at Wetherington Country Club in West Chester, Ohio. The club, in which Boehner is a member, calls itself, “one of the most prestigious full-service private clubs in Cincinnati.”

Hoyt told officers that Boehner had been “mean to him at the country club,” but also claimed to somehow be Jesus Christ, and accused Boehner as being responsible for the deadly Ebola virus:“Hoyt told the officer he was Jesus Christ and he was going to kill Boehner because Boehner was mean to him at the country club and because Boehner is responsible for Ebola,” United States Capitol Police (USCP) Special Agent Christopher M. Desrosiers said. “Hoyt advised he had a loaded Beretta .380 automatic and he was going to shoot Boehner and take off.” h/t tpnn

Officers said Hoyt told them he regretted not having enough time to put something in Boehner’s drink. It was also discovered Hoyt emailed Boehner’s wife about the plot a day before he called police, Desrosiers said.
