A Philadelphia blogger is behind a Facebook page calling for the death of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and another page supporting two alleged cop killers.I think the intent of the insane is pretty clear...
The page calling for violence against Romney garnered 27 "likes" and remained up for 17 days before coming down on Monday, according to the Washington Free Beacon. It and another page targeting Romney's vice presidential pick, Paul Ryan, was created by blogger Joshua Scott Albert, who drew the attention of the Secret Service, according to a spokesman.
"We are aware of it and we are taking appropriate investigative steps," Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told FoxNews.com.
Donovan said Albert could potentially face prosecution, if the page is deemed more than an ill-advised lark.
"People have a right to free speech, but we have to determine what their intent is," Donovan said.
