Two men are facing charges of  making election-related threats against three Michigan officials.

U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin and Court of Claims Judge Cynthia Stephens received the alleged threatening messages.

The Michigan Attorney General’s office says 62-year-old Daniel Thompson of Harrison left voicemail and email messages with Sen. Stabenow’s office. He allegedly also made calls to Rep. Slotkin’s’ office.   Prosecutors allege Thompson used vulgar and threatening language referencing the 2020 election.
