Nebraska man accused of threatening Iowa US Sen. Joni Ernst

Posted: Updated:

Threatening to kill Iowa Senator Joni Ernst.

That's what an Omaha man is accused of.

Robert Simet allegedly told employees at an Iowa motorcycle dealership that he could kill Senator Ernst.

He apparently also said all elected members of government should be killed.

Ernst was scheduled to speak at the dealership on Sunday. 

Simet is being charged with threatening to assault a federal officer.

He's due in court this morning.
