(5/3/13) A rural Black River Falls woman is due in court on Monday, after she allegedly threatened Scott Walker's family in a phone call to the governor's office.

52-year-old Dana Sartor is charged in Jackson County with a misdemeanor count of making a telephone threat. Prosecutors said a woman called the Republican Walker's office on April 16th and left a voice message in which she said she was quote, "Gonna shoot your wife and kids." The Capitol Police traced the call to Sartor's home. A criminal complaint said Sartor admitted the call, but she meant no harm. She also told officers that she recently wrote Governor Walker, to say he was doing a good job. Prosecutors said Sartor denied being intoxicated at the time of the message.
