Tea Party supporter charged for shooting up mosque

Last month, a mosque in Meriden, Connecticut, was hit by a hail of gunfire. Three bullets penetrated the building.

Now federal authorities have charged a nearby resident - Ted Hakey Jr., 48 - with the attack. Court documents say Hakey used a high-powered rifle to shoot up the mosque. A text message on Hakey's phone way back in July said, "I want to take the jewzi and unload on Muslims. I'm in a target rich environment."

The charge carries up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Go check out Hakey's Facebook page. I dare you. You'll find that he supports a lot of Tea Party and other right-wing sites. Big surprise.
