Convict's Hillary Clinton threat

Falvey seems to have sought attention by threatening Mrs Clinton
A convicted bank robber has admitted threatening to kill US Senator Hillary Clinton in a bid to "spice up " his life, New Jersey court officials say.

Edward Falvey, 51, pleaded guilty to a charge of threatening an immediate family member of a former president, the Associated Press reported.

Falvey told a prison psychologist he wanted to "shoot a very famous person. My life is dull and boring."

His hit list also included Bill Clinton and federal judges, prosecutors said.

After secret service agents visited him in prison, where he is serving a 30-month sentence for robbery, Falvey wrote to the psychologist, saying "This is all starting to get exciting... I feel like a movie star".

In 1977 Falvey was put on probation for threatening the then president, Jimmy Carter, AP reported.

He has yet to be sentenced for the latest threat.
