That's what the Fairfax Times is reporting. Is this another case of "nothing-to-see-here" BDS anti-Bushism? Or, to the contrary, was this guy actually a legitimate threat?
The fact that he was in possession of a Chinese-made AK-47 just might provide a clue or two.
The closest thing I can find on someone named "DAI Charn-Chan" is this 1999 posting on a Singaporean chatroom.
Chinese speakers:—Is "呆昌產" the correct spelling of his name? Because Google China isn't giving me any love there.
It's worth noting that this incident occurred on the 30th of September, which is fully 2 weeks ago. Where in the world is the "professional" media on reporting this threat against a Republican politician?
(Has the Secret Service really been keeping this story quiet for two weeks? Would they have done so if it were The One who was being threatened?)
