NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A California woman has been indicted on a charge she posted threatening statements about President Barack Obama and his family on her Twitter feed and Facebook page while she was visiting New Orleans.

Friday's one-count indictment charges 32-year-old Felisha Monet Mitchell, of Palm Springs, Calif., with threatening the president, a charge punishable by a maximum of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Federal prosecutors say Mitchell used her cellphone to post the alleged threats in January.

Mitchell was arrested earlier this month and ordered held in custody.

Apparently, Ms.Monet is also African-American and does not think the President has done anything. Her tweets and picture are posted here by someone.
