MINNEAPOLIS — When a man with an expressed hatred for Muslims holding public office goes before a New York federal judge and hears his sentence for threatening to kill U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, he will have a prominent Muslim politician on his side.

The Minnesota Democrat submitted a letter Tuesday to U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci asking that he show mercy and not give 55-year-old Patrick W. Carlineo Jr. a lengthy prison sentence or substantial fine for calling her Capitol Hill office earlier this year and threatening to shoot her in the head.
