Jefferson City Lawmakers Threatening Emails, Missouri lawmakers are on edge after someone sent threatening emails to a number of state senate leaders this week.
On Tuesday morning, an eastern Missouri man angry over rising gas prices allegedly sent a threatening email to at least six lawmakers. According to authorities, the email used explicit language and made a reference to the shooting of Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
Authorities say that the man also mentioned Missouri state senators Robin Wright-Jones, Jack Goodman, Victor Callahan and Jolie Justus by name.
Capitol police say that the incident, which comes a month after someone left cross-hair stickers on the doors of five state senators, is still under investigation, but Missouri Senate President Pro-Tem Robert Mayer’s office said that investigators made contact with the man on Tuesday afternoon, and that the man had apologized in an email.
The incident comes as lawmakers debate a bill that would increase security at the Missouri capitol building. The bill would allow for an additional 32 security cameras in the hallways, and the addition of armed guards.
