Paul Rosenfeld: Sortition Supporter Charged in Election Day Suicide Bomb Plot

he FBI has arrested a New York man accused of plotting to blow himself up on Election Day in the National Mall in a suicide bombing. Prosecutors said his plan was to draw attention to “sortition,” which is a “political theory that advocates the random selection of government officials.”

Paul Rosenfeld was charged October 10 with unlawfully manufacturing a destructive device and interstate transportation and receipt of an explosive, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York said in a press release. Rosenfeld told the FBI he was not aiming to injure or kill anyone other than himself, but federal authorities said the bombing would have put others at risk.

So.. sortition? Looking online doesn't seem to offer anything specific enough to blow one's self up over. Just a blue state crazy who hates that the electoral college result caused Hillary to lose, I suppose...

Who would ever guess that those rolls of putrid fat were really explosives?
