(Newser) – The "crazy man with the bomb" charged with holding hostage workers at Hillary Clinton's New Hampshire headquarters released a passionately worded apology, reports the AP. A keenly remorseful Leeland Eisenberg wrote that "I want to fully and sincerely acknowledge the fear, pains, and lasting effects my senseless actions caused you."

Eisenberg was charged with a number of felonies, including kidnapping, after his Nov. 30 arrest. “Having been victimized and knowing the horrors of trauma myself, knowing that I, traumatized you as I have been, is something I can't bare to live with nor will I ever forgive myself!” he wrote.
