Woman charged with threatening governor's family


BLACK RIVER FALLS (WKOW) – A Black River Falls woman is charged with threatening Gov. Scott Walker's Family.

According to a criminal complaint, 52-year-old Dana Sartor called the governor's office on April 16 and left a voicemail with slurred speech that threatened to shoot Walker's wife and children.

Capitol police investigated the incident and traced the call to Sartor's residence.

The complaint also states that Sartor admitted making the call, but told detectives she had no intention of harming the governor's family.

Authorities say Sartor told investigators she had recently written the governor to tell him she thought he was doing a good job.

According to the La Crosse Tribune, Sartor is charged in Jackson County with telephone harassment and is due in court on Monday.
