A 39-year-old South Jersey man was found guilty Wednesday by a federal jury in Camden of threatening the life of U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R., N.J.) and his staff.
Joseph Brodie of Millville was convicted of two counts of making threats against LoBiondo and his staff in 2017. LoBiondo represents the Second District in South Jersey.
Brodie was reportedly getting help from LoBiondo's staff with veteran services when he asked for a personal meeting with the congressman and was refused. Brodie then made threats against one LoBiondo staffer, and then the congressman and other staffers.
Brodie faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. No sentencing date was immediately scheduled.
