TULSA - Karl Ahlgren, chief of staff for U.S. Congressman Markwayne Mullin, confirmed that death threats have been made against the newly-elected congressman, his wife and children.
Federal law enforcement authorities consider this to be a "serious matter due to the content and nature of the threatening letters which were received," Ahlgren said.
Ahlgren said precautions have been taken to ensure the safety of his wife and children, and both local and federal authorities are investigating the matter.
