MADISON -- 31-year-old Robert Peffer is charged with several misdemeanors after allegedly threatening one of Governor Scott Walker's sons.

Peffer is accused of sending several threatening messages to 20-year-old Matthew Walker via Twitter. When asked why he sent the messages Peffer told police it was only because Matthew was Governor Walker's son. Peffer says he's been a part of the recall effort since 2011. 

Peffer has been investigated for similar threats he's made against President Barack Obama.
