Why is the Secret Service ignoring public threats to Mitt Romney?

The Secret Service appears to be playing politics by ignoring not responding to threats of physical harm and violence against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made by leftist filmmaker Michael Moore and the George Soros-funded far left wing group MoveOn.org.

The Blaze  The threat was made via a web video (below) released earlier this week in which Moore and MoveOn hide behind elderly women who make scripted terrorist threats against Romney and the nation over the presidential election. While it highly unlikely the women in the ad would be able to fulfill their threats, Moore and MoveOn are inciting violence against Romney and riots over the election.

Several phone calls to the Secret Service public affairs office about the threat to Romney, who is under their protection, over the past few days have not been returned. Detailed messages of inquiry were left with the voicemail of spokesman George Ogilvie. A search of news sites shows no articles reporting a Secret Service investigation in to the threat.

Last April,  conservative rock musician and outspoken Second Amendment activist Ted Nugent was investigated by the Secret Service within days of making an ambiguous comment about President Barack Obama. Nugent was reported to have said at a National Rifle Association convention, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Unlike Moore and MoveOn, Nugent did not make a threat of violence. Romney has been the subject of numerous threats, prompting the Secret Service to take to Twitter to encourage people to report threats. MoveOn.org
