Wisconsin Liberal Arrested for Trying to Buy Radioactive Material to Kill Republicans

A Wisconsin man, well known as a liberal activist and sometimes candidate for Congress, was arrested and charged with seeking to buy radioactive material with which to allegedly kill Republicans.

The FBI arrested Jeremy Ryan, 30, of Madison, Wisconsin, and charged him with “attempted possession of radioactive material with intent to cause death,” according to WTMJ Milwaukee.

Court filings allege that Ryan tried to buy lethal doses of radioactive substances in March and then again in October of this year.

He is well-known as a liberal activist around the state capitol building in Madison and was dubbed “the Segway boy” for riding around the capitol grounds on a Segway and screaming attacks on Republicans.

Ryan also ran for Congress as a Democrat in 2018. He lost a primary race to Democrat Bryan Steil.

The suspect also ran for Congress in 2014 for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District.

According to WBAY ABC 2:

According to the criminal complaint, an FBI Online Covert Employee, also known as an OCE, had listed for sale on a website “several illicit items… including a radioactive substance.” The substance described in the agent’s listing is known to be highly toxic and deadly in small doses.

The website was not named, but the complaint states that it offers subsections for the sale of drugs, counterfeit goods, and weapons.

On March 16, the OCE received a private message from a user named “tigolebittes” (referred to as “TOB” in the complaint) inquiring “How much is included? And would it get to the US in time to still have time before half life?”

“TOB”, later identified as Jeremy Ryan, provided his email address to the OCE so they could enter a conversation over an encrypted platform.

The complaint states that Ryan asked, “How long would it take the poison to kill someone after ingested? I’m looking for something that’s very rare/ difficult to get a hold of. Also that doesn’t show symptoms immediately but kills them fairly soon after. Preferably something that is not going to be extremely brutal and drawn out. But the main quality is that it is extremely difficult to procure so that people automatically suspect the government. Do you have something other than the [radioactive substance] that would be like that and also safe to ship?”

FBI investigators said that they traced the mailing info Ryan gave to a UPS store where they then obtained his home address and other information.

This story will probably get lost in the news, so it is good to be made aware of it as the rest of the media goes mad over the so-called “MAGA bomber.”
