OK State Representative and Family Receive Death Threats

Posted: Updated:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ The chief of staff to newly-elected Republican U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin says the congressman and his family have received death threats.

 

Karl Ahlgren told reporters in Tulsa on Saturday that the unspecified threat is being investigated and that precautions have been taken to protect Mullin and his family which includes his wife, two sons and a daughter.

 Mullin's office did not immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press.

 Mullin won election as congressman from the 2nd Congressional District in southeastern Oklahoma. Incumbent Democratic Rep. Dan Boren did not seek re-election to the seat.
