Secret Service to Interview Ted Nugent About Obama Comments

CNN reports that the Secret Service will interview Ted Nugent on Thursday about comments that he made about President Obama, in which the rocker said that if the president is reelected, “I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Nugent said on Glenn Beck’s radio show on Wednesday, “We actually have heard from the Secret Service, and they have a duty, and I salute them, I support them. I’m looking forward to our meeting tomorrow. I’m sure it’ll be a fine gathering backstage in Oklahoma.”

The Secret Service typically investigates all threats or even stray comments that could be taken as threats, but does not elaborate on the results of its investigation.
