RAW Story: Woman gets death threats after being targeted by Glenn Beck

November 1, 2010- An Illinois woman who volunteered to moderate a congressional debate received numerous threats of violence and death threats after being targeted personally by Fox News personality Glenn Beck, according to a report a colleague filed last week with the FBI.

League of Women Voters Illinois Executive Director Jan Czarnik filed a report saying she and Kathy Tate-Bradish, who moderated the debate, had been the target of Internet death threats after being singled out by name on Beck's Oct. 25 program. The League of Women voters moderated a debate between candidates in Illinois' 8th district.

Beck had singled out Tate-Bradish because she declined a request from a veteran -- who was supporter of the Republican candidate -- to begin with the Pledge of Allegiance.

“I have to say that being forced by having audience members stand up in presumably a planned way to have something like that happen seems a bit disrespectful,” Tate-Bradish told the crowd during the debate.

Czarnik later called the request "phony patriotism."
