Woman Accused of Threatening To Kill President Obama
Assistant U.S. Attorney Craig Gestring says that Christine Wright Darrisaw threatened to kill President Barack Obama during a telephone call to the White House on February 24th.
The Rochester woman accused of threatening to kill President Barack Obama has a history of mental health issues, which could result in the charges being dropped.
Her family says the February 24th phone call to the White House was made out of desperation.
"She's a nice, loving, church-going woman," says Minnie Pearl Wright. "She would never, never harm (President) Obama." Yet the Secret Service says 36-year-old Christine Wright Darrisaw's words suggest otherwise.
"I'm going to (expletive) and kill Obama," is what she is accused of saying to a White House operator.
The alleged threat was part of a long tirade about child custody laws. According to court filings the operator told the Secret Service "she recognized the caller's voice because she's always calling the White House with regard to child custody issues.
