Obsessive Fox News Watcher Picked Up for Threatening to Murder Liberal Girlfriend

Gawker and Mediaite have a story out of Florida about a creepy-sounding Fox News superfan who allegedly went beserk on his girlfriend when he found out she was liberal.


The deputy who arrested Kappheim said the man told him "he was very conservative, and his girlfriend was liberal and he felt he was going to have kill her." Furthermore, he said he already made three attempts on the woman's life.

The same deputy reported that documents found inside the woman's apartment that belonged to Kappheim led him to suspect he was "obsessed" with Fox News and the GOP, and posed a threat to others.

This guy sounds like a real winner. Fox News: preying on the disturbed fantasies of the unwell since 1996.
