John Zaubler called 911 from his West 72nd Street apartment last Saturday to say he was going to blow up the Supreme Court nominee.
NEW YORK -- A Manhattan man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he threatened to kill U.S. Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor to keep his girlfriend out of prison. A criminal complaint says John Zaubler called 911 from his West 72nd Street apartment last Saturday and said he was going to kill Sotomayor by "blowing her up." The 48-year-old defendant pleaded not guilty on Friday to making a terroristic threat at his Manhattan Criminal Court arraignment by videoconference from Bellevue Hospital's prison ward.
Judge James Gibbons ordered a psychiatric examination for Zaubler. The judge ordered him held without bail and scheduled a hearing for July 6.
Editor Rozek’s Notes: I am not guilty. That 911 recording is completely inaccurate. What I said was “I’m going to show her up!" I had heard that there was going to be a courtroom taco making contest and since she has claimed that her roots have given her the ability to do better than a white man, I wanted to show her up in the contest. I don’t know why I’m in this psychiatric facility. I thought she identified with the underpriviledged and misunderstood?
