A 28-year-old Syracuse man has been arrested for allegedly threatening U.S. Rep. John Katko, federal prosecutors on Wednesday announced.

Patrick D. Angelo faces charges of interstate communication of a threat and threatening a federal official, which carry a maximum of 10 years in prison.

Angelo is alleged to have left a message on Katko’s voice mail expressing displeasure over the issues surrounding net neutrality, regulations over Internet speed and access the Federal Communications Commission is expected to loosen formally next month.

“Listen Mr. Katko, if you support net neutrality, I will support you,” Angelo is accused of saying in the recording.

“But if you don’t support net neutrality, I will find you and your family and I will kill…you…all. Do you understand?” The message continued: “I will literally find all…of…you and your progeny and t- just wipe you from the face of the earth. Net neutrality is more important than the defense of the United States. Net neutrality is more important than free speech. Net neutrality is more important than health care. Net neutrality is literally the basis of the new society. That even if you don’t understand, how important it is, net neutrality is literally the basis of the new…free…society. So if you don’t support it, I am willing to lay down my li- (recording ends).”

The message was left on the lawmaker’s office voicemail and sent to the U.S. Capitol Police, which investigated it with the FBI.

Katko, a Republican, was first elected in 2014, and is a former assistant U.S. attorney. Security around Katko has been increased as a result of threat.

“While citizens are certainly entitled to communicate their views on issues of importance to them to their elected officials, there are and must be bounds to the manner in which such views may be expressed, said U.S. Attorney James Kennedy of the western district of New York. “We will respond aggressively to those who overstep those bounds and seek to influence the making of Federal policies and legislation by making threats to the lives of those entrusted with such tasks and their families.”
