Manager Vincent McCrudden Maintained Execution List For Names - Faces Federal Charges.

Manager Vincent McCrudden maintained execution list for names. He has been charged with threatening to kill 47 U.S. officials, including the nation's top regulators.

McCrudden, 49, last month allegedly posted online an "execution list" naming officials, including Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro and Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman Gary Gensler.

Federal prosecutors said the threat came shortly after the CFTC brought an enforcement action accusing the former commodities trader and two of his companies with operating unregistered investments.

The New York money manager used the list to make execution threats against officials at the SEC, CFTC, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the National Futures Association, authorities said. "Go buy a gun, and lets get to work in taking back our country from these criminals," McCrudden allegedly wrote. "I will be the first one to lead by example."

The McCrudden arrest comes amid heightened concern for the safety of public officials after last week's mass execution and shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and others in Tucson, Arizona. "Threats of death and violence against federal officials and employees for executing their duties are simply unacceptable," said Lanny Breuer, assistant attorney general of the Department of Justice's criminal division, in a statement.
