A NY man is accused of manufacturing a bomb with the intention of detonating it on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Election Day, U.S. Attorneys said Wednesday.

He said he used approximately 8 pounds of black powder to build a large bomb in the basement of his home, adding that he installed components in the explosive device to make sure he was killed in the blast planned for November 6., according to the complaint.

Rosenfeld adheres to an ideology called Sortition, which advocates that government officials should be selected by lottery rather than popular vote, according to the complaint.

"Rosenfeld concocted a twisted plan to draw attention to his political ideology by killing himself on the National Mall in Washington, D.C - risking harm to many others in the process", Geoffrey Berman, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of NY, said in a statement.

Assistant Director-in-Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. said that the suspect "planned to detonate a large explosive to kill himself and draw attention to his radical political beliefs".

Rosenfeld, who told investigators he acted alone, had been planning his mission since at least August and had already conducted test detonations of smaller devices using black powder, the complaint said.

The FBI said in court filings that Rosenfeld confessed to ordering large quantities of black powder over the Internet.

ROsenfeld was charged with unlawfully manufacturing a destructive device, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

Paul Rosenfeld, 56, was arrested in Rockland County after authorities got a tip from an unidentified individual in Pennsylvania that Rosenfeld was allegedly communicating with about his plot.

'There is no danger to the public, ' the Rockland County town supervisor said in a statement.

Letters and text messages that Rosenfeld allegedly sent to the Pennsylvania tipster detailed his plot, authorities said in a criminal complaint.

Berman praised the investigative work of the FBI's New York Joint Terrorism Task Force, which consists principally of agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and detectives of the New York City Police Department.

He appeared before a magistrate at a federal courthouse in White Plains, New York, on Wednesday afternoon.
