Second Colo. man charged with harassing a lawmaker

DENVER (AP) - Another man is facing charges of threatening a state legislator during the heated debate over gun control measures in Colorado.

The Denver district attorney's office says David Cassidy is accused of leaving a threatening voicemail on Sen. Andy Kerr's cellphone March 4, the day Senate committees passed a series of bills tightening restrictions on guns.

Cassidy faces a felony charge of attempting to influence a public official and a misdemeanor harassment charge.

Earlier this month, Franklin Sain was charged with attempting to influence a public official and harassment based on ethnicity after Rep. Rhonda Fields received calls and emails laced with profanity and racial slurs. Sain has admitted sending the messages but denies threatening Fields.

Sain is scheduled to be arraigned April 22. Cassidy will appear in court April 15.
