A Florida man will see 15 months in prison for threatening to kill Bernie Sanders.

A federal judge sentenced Robert Pratersch on Friday.

Court documents show Pratersch left three anti-Semitic voicemails at Sanders’ Burlington office last fall.

One of them included a threat to behead Sanders “isis-style,” and videotape the execution.

The FBI, the Federal Air Marshal’s Office, and the U.S. Capitol Police all investigated.
