According to the charging documents, on March 29, 2023, at approximately 12:20 a.m., Poller called the congressional office in Washington DC and left a voicemail, stating:
“Hi, my name is Allan Poller, A-L-L-A-N P-O-L-L-E-R, phone number 8931. And I just want to let you know, Representative [Name], if you keep on coming for the gays, we’re gonna strike back, and I guarantee you, you do not want to f*ck with us. We will kill you if that’s what it takes. I will take a bullet to your fu*king head if you f*ck with my rights anymore. And then if you want to keep going down that path, you know who’s next.”
Poller was charged with “transmitting in interstate commerce a threat to injure the person of another,” the press release reads. He faces “up to five years in prison, up to three years of supervised release, and a fine of up to $250,000.”

His lawyer described Poller as “peaceful” and said that he meant “no ill will toward anybody and does not believe in violence or disruptive protest,” the Associated Press reported.
The lawyer told the AP that Poller “is mindful of the allegations against him and will allow the legal process to continue without further comment at this time.”
Poller told investigators that he was “emotional and intoxicated” when the call was made and that he does not own firearms.
