Man pleads guilty to threatening to kill Obama; previously convicted of threatening to kill Bush

Democrat or Republican, it doesn't seem to matter to Fabian Lamar Britt. The north Georgia man pleaded guilty Wednesday morning in U.S. District Court to threatening to kill President Obama in a 2011 letter. Britt, 31, with a lengthy history of mental illness, sent the letter while he was in Jack T. Rutledge state prison in Columbus. He was serving a 5-year sentence for a Cobb County burglary and is scheduled for release on that charge in May 2014.
