Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz released audio from a voicemail he received in March where a man fro Florida threatened to “hang [Chaffetz] from a lamppost.”
“Hey Jason Chaffetz—I suggest you prepare for the battle, motherf**ker, and the apocalypse,” the caller yelled. “Because we are going to hunt your ass down, wrap a rope around your neck, and hang you from a lamppost!”
The man has since been arrested. “There has got to be better ways to protect members of Congress,” Chaffetz said.
Chaffetz stated that he wants police to do more to protect congressmen from threats of violence. This after the shooting of Majority House Whip Steve Scalise.
