Updated: Hostage Taker Faces 42 Years!
Leeland Eisenberg, who Friday took several of Hillary Clinton staff hostage at her Rochester, NH campaign office, was formally charged today and faces a potential 42-year jail sentence. The charges include kidnapping, threatening and possessing a bomb-like device. He's being held on a $500,000 bail. According to MSNBC, Eisenberg said he wanted to thank the police for not shooting him even though he asked them to. Okay.
Eisenberg, who has a history of emotional problems and an arrest record, had demanded to speak with Sen. Hillary Clinton because he didn't have health and insurance wanted discuss mental health care. Seriously! "It was an act of desperation to try and get help," his stepson Ben Warren told ABC News. "He was wanting help with his problems and he was not able to get it because he did not have insurance."
