11.30.17 | Bob Price

Republican John Katko of Syracuse received the threat in the form of a voice mail message left at his office in Washington, D.C. last month.

The caller, 28 year-old Patrick Angelo threatened to kill Katko and his family if he opposed net neutrality.

The chairman of the FCC, who recently announced an end to net neutrality, also received a death threat at his home.

The U.S. attorney's office is investigating the Katko call.

Threatening a federal official is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
