BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. -

A Black River Falls woman is charged with threatening Gov. Scott Walker's family.

A criminal complaint said 52-year-old Dana Sartor called the governor's office April 16 and in slurred speech left a voice mail threatening to shoot Walker's wife and children.

Capitol police investigated and traced the call to Sartor's residence. The complaint said Sartor admitted making the call, but told detectives she had no intention of harming the governor's family. Police say Sartor told investigators she had recently written the governor to tell him she thought he was doing a good job.

The La Crosse Tribune said Sartor is charged in Jackson County with telephone harassment. She's due in court Monday.
