Senate Candidate Threatened

Katy Grimes: Thursday evening, a man was arrested by Sacramento County Sheriff‘s deputies after making multiple threatening phone calls to the campaign office of Barbara Alby, candidate for Senate District 1, and acting board member for the Board of Equalization.

The arrest record states that Daniel Meader Todd, made “threats to commit a crime resulting in death or great bodily injury.”

Alby said, “It was scary.” She said she is shaken and her kids are shaken because the numerous calls were made to Alby’s campaign office  which is located within a business owned by her daughter. Apparently Todd threatened to harm Ably at the office location.

When she was in the Assembly and working on Megan’s Law, Alby said she received threats then as well, and her children were threatened. This latest incident stirred up unpleasant memories of previous incidents.

However, Mr. Todd is in custody with a $100,000 bail, and Alby will be pursuing prosecution.

    For those of us with a memory, Megan’s Law in California came before the national version, the Amber Alert. Barbara may be the closest thing in California to Maggie Thatcher. Even though I’m now in Utah courtesy of BRAC*95, I’m still a fan.

    God bless you Barbara for standing up for truth. I am pleasantly surprised that the police acted on your complaint rather than ignoring it, in view of you politics. Maybe there is hope.
