Man accused of harassing phone calls to senator

Nov. 9, 2009

A Wauwatosa man has been charged with making harassing phone calls to U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl's office.

Timothy Harwood, 55, was arrested Wednesday for using obscene language, racial slurs and making threats during 17 phone calls to Kohl's Milwaukee office between Oct. 23 and Nov. 4, according to a Wauwatosa police report.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is investigating the case because the calls allegedly made threats against a federal official. Kohl, D-Wis, has represented the state in the U.S. Senate for 21 years.

Harwood is scheduled to appear at the Milwaukee County Courthouse for a pretrial conference Dec. 3.
