Death Threats Target California Governor Jerry Brown

Photo Courtesy - Justin Sullivan/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Authorities are investigating graffiti threats against California Gov. Jerry Brown, Catholics, and minorities.

Complaints of disturbing graffiti started last week, when a death threat appeared near two Catholic churches in the cities of Anaheim and Irvine, Calif. Orange County officials have since been inundated with reports of similar graffiti targeting African Americans, Asians, and Hispanics. The most recent crossed a political line, promising to kill the governor on Valentine's Day.

Investigators found a swastika on one defaced wall, beside the ominous warning: "26 MORE DAYS 4 BROWN." A second threat read, "We gonna kill GOV. BROWN 2/14/11." The walls have since been cleaned.

The scribblings are linked by certain idiosyncrasies in penmanship and spelling, according to The Los Angeles Times.
