Authorities: Houston Man Threatened to Take Out Ted Cruz–and the Sun

A Texas man has been accused of threatening to kidnap, murder, and burn Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his father. 

Nick Gates said if he wasn’t paid $3 million, he would not only harm Cruz and his dad; he would also “blow up” the sun.

The man reportedly stated he was previously hospitalized in Houston at the Harris County Mental Health Center.

Gates allegedly made threatening phone calls to Cruz’s offices in San Antonio and Austin on June 5. Gates has admitted making the calls and threatening Cruz, saying he would “lose the sun” if he didn’t cough up the cash, according to court documents.

Law enforcement charged Gates with making a terroristic threat, and he is being held on a $10,000 bond.
