“Leave Obamacare alone or die,” hostile Westerville man gets prison time

A Westerville man is slated for more than three years behind prison bars after threatening to murder U.S. Representative Steve Stivers.

Due to some conflicting political views, 69-year-old E. Stanley Hoff phoned Stivers’s office in Hilliard and left threatening voicemails saying, “We’re going to take care of it our way,” and “Leave Obamacare alone or die.”
