Sen. Clinton threatened

The week's news at a glance.

Camden, N.J.

A convicted bank robber admitted in court last week that he threatened to kill Sen. Hillary Clinton to “spice up” his life. Edward Falvey, 51, wrote a prison psychologist last year, saying that he was bored and wanted to shoot someone famous for excitement. He named Hillary Clinton, former president Bill Clinton, and several federal judges on his hit list. After Secret Service agents questioned him, Falvey wrote another letter, saying, “I feel like a movie star.” Falvey, who was already serving 30 months for robbery, faces up to five more years for threatening to kill an immediate family member of a former president. In 1977, he received probation for threatening then-president Jimmy Carter.
