Calif. Man Gets 21 Months for Pelosi Threats House speaker approves plea deal for Gregory Giusti By Rob Quinn, Newser Staff Posted Dec 3, 2010 3:48 AM CST 19 comments Comments Gregory Lee Giusti, 49, has admitted making more than 30 abusive and harassing phone calls to the homes and offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. (AP Photo/San Mateo Sheriff's office, file) (Newser) – A San Francisco man who made dozens of threatening and abusive phone calls to Nancy Pelosi's home and offices has been sentenced to 21 months in a federal prison. Gregory Lee Giusti, 49, threatened to destroy the House speaker's home if she continued to support health care reform, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. A spokesman for Pelosi says she approved the plea deal, which came after Giusti—who was jailed in 2004 for threatening to kill a train conductor—pleaded guilty to a felony charge of impeding or retaliating against a member of Congress. After his arrest earlier this year, Giusti's mother blamed his actions on Fox News.
