Man sends Brokaw 3,500 angry e-mail: “Someone doesn’t like Tom Brokaw. That would be Steven Koplan, 46, of Staten Island, N.Y., who has been charged with second-degree aggravated harassment after sending 3,500 e-mails to MSNBC over two months last year, including 13 that threatened Brokaw.
According to the Staten Island Advance newspaper, a 66-count indictment alleges that Koplan sent the messages with the ‘intent to harass, annoy, threaten and alarm’ Brokaw.
Koplan, who will be arraigned Wednesday, comes off as a bit off-kilter. ‘Tom is just trying to help me,’ he told the Advance.
