WASHINGTON -- A man who threatened to kill Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), speaking of his "final Yom Kippur," was sentenced to two years in prison.

The Washington Post on Friday quoted prosecutors as saying Norman LeBoon, 33, of Philadelphia, must also complete three years of supervision after his sentence is complete, including no Internet access.

LeBoon had posted the video on YouTube in March 2010, at the height of the debate over health care when a number of Democrats had been threatened, although it is not clear why he threatened Cantor, the only Jewish Republican in Congress.

"Our judgment time, the final Yom Kippur has been given," LeBoon said in the video. "You and your children are Lucifer's abominations."

LeBoon pleaded guilty in a federal court in November to threatening Cantor and his family.
