A Philadelphia blogger's "Kill Mitt Romney" Facebook page has drawn the notice of the U.S. Secret Service, officials said.
Joshua Scott Albert, 26, whose inflammatory and profanity-laced "Staph Meal" blogs attacked chefs and their restaurants until a lawsuit from noted chefs Georges Perrier and Shola Olunloyo caused Albert's identity to be known, is back with Facebook pages titled "Kill John McNesby, the president of the local Fraternal Order of Police; "Kill Seth Williams," Philadelphia's district attorney, and "I Support Chancier McFarland & Rafael Jones," references to men charged with the killing of a police officer, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Thursday.
Albert's "Kill Mitt Romney," "Kill Dick Cheney" and "Kill Karl Rove" pages have been taken down, and the U.S. Secret Service is "taking the appropriate investigative steps," a spokesman said.
The District Attorney's Office is also investigating the pages, said Tasha Jamerson, a spokeswoman for District Attorney Williams.
McNesby said, "I wouldn't dignify with any type of conversation. He's a professional antagonizer. He's just a little punk. His day's coming."
