Roll Call reports:
“I can show you where the people have made horrible accusations and things they were going to do to members of my family, and I couldn’t even get Capitol Hill police to respond to my phone calls about it,” Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., said Friday on CNN when discussing a voicemail left for another member’s wife.
Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., one of the eight GOP members who voted to oust McCarthy, said Friday she has seen an uptick in threats against her since she took that vote. “I had four last weekend. Four different threats. I had one the week before that. They’re calls, they’re emails,” Mace said. She also carries a gun, she said.

It may be taking longer than we originally thought, but we’re following the rules and going through the process to elect a Speaker. I don’t care what side they’re on, the dirtbags sending death threats to members of Congress and their families need to be thrown in jail. pic.twitter.com/sMlvuziBcq

My vote card belongs to me and the people of NY’s First Congressional District. I will not succumb to threats. Rather, I’ll support a Speaker candidate who will fund the WTC Health Fund, Nat’l Flood Insurance and SALT, while keeping the gov’t open + secure border & cut spending. pic.twitter.com/uCms7xl3Co
