A man in Florida has pleaded guilty to making threatening phone calls to prominent Democrats in Congress, including threats to behead them.

Paul Vernon Hoeffer, 60, admitted to the charges in federal court in Fort Pierce on Friday, confessing to threatening House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Chicago prosecutor Kim Foxx.

As part of the plea, Hoeffer admitted that in March 2019, he called Pelosi's office in Washington, D.C. and threatened to come a 'long, long, way' to 'rattle her head with bullets' and cut her head off. 

On the same day, Hoeffer also called Foxx, the Cook County state's attorney, telling her bullets were going to 'rattle her brain.'

At the time, Foxx was in the news for dropping charges against actor Jussie Smollett, who staged a fake hate crime against himself. 

Smollett was later convicted of the hoax after Foxx was pressured into appointing a special investigator.

Hoeffer also admitted that in November of 2020 he called Ocasio-Cortez's New York offices and threatened that he would 'rip her head off,' warning her to sleep with 'one eye open'. 

The plea agreement does not specify a motive for the sickening threats.

In some of the calls, Hoeffer warned of an 'all-out war' and a 'civilian army,' according to the plea deal.

Hoeffer's criminal record in Florida shows only a charge for violating the protection of manatees, as well as a long list of traffic violations. 

No prior booking photos for Hoeffer could be found and he did not appear to have any social media profiles. 

U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon is scheduled to sentence Hoeffer on April 1. 

Hoeffer faces up to 15 years in federal prison.
