Miami, Florida – 60-year-old Paul Vernon Hoeffer on Friday pled guilty in federal court to making threatening phone calls to two members of Congress and a district attorney.

As part of the plea, Hoeffer admitted that in March 2019, he called Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s office in Washington, D.C. and threatened to come a “long, long, way” to rattle her head with bullets and cut her head off. On the same day, Hoeffer also called a district attorney in the State of Illinois, telling her bullets were going to “rattle her brain.”

Again, in November of 2020, Hoeffer called another Congresswoman, this time New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. During this call, he threatened that he would “rip her head off,” and told her to sleep with one eye open.

U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon will sentence Hoeffer on April 1, at 11:00 a.m., in Ft. Pierce. Hoeffer faces up to 15 years in federal prison.
