A Des Plaines, Illinois, man is being investigated for a social media post that allegedly threatens lynching U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson, according to a Chicago Tribune report.

Tom Keevers, 54, told the Tribune that a ?meme maker? had framed him, but also said the lynching threat was ?a joke as I read it.?

Des Plaines police confirmed to the Tribune that they were looking into a Facebook post under Keevers? name.

The post read: ?Need 10 good men to help carry out a lynching. Must have own horse and saddle. Rope will be provided.?

After a dissent that included an expletive, another post with Keevers? name says, ?Yes, this Congresswomen is a disgusting pig.
