And finally… pillow talk
A senior prosecutor in Utah has apologised after telling an elected politician to “die and go to hell” for disturbing his nap.
Utah’s Assistant Attorney General Steven Wuthrich sent a tirade of abuse to Salt Lake City councillor Darin Mano after “the interruption to my tranquillity”, he admitted.
According to NBC News, he wrote in an email: “I will do everything in my power to see you never get elected to any office higher than dog catcher.
“I hate you. I hate your family. I hate your solicitors. I hate your contributors. I hate your sponsors.”
Mr Wuthrich signed off: “Kindly die and go to hell motherf*****!!!!”
In a statement apologising for the outburst, the prosecutor said he “was awakened from a nap and reacted with undue anger”.
He added: “Since then I have regretted the ferocity and language of that email. My words were uncivil and unprofessional.”
