Former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake says a man with a rifle scope went looking for him at church.
He’s outlining the many threats he says he received before leaving office.
Flake told The Guardian that a man entered three church buildings in Arizona belonging to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints looking for him. Flake is a member of the Church. The man reportedly also showed up at another event two weeks ago.
Mesa Police confirm they are helping Flake and his family during an investigation being handled by federal authorities. The Church declined to comment to a question about it from the St George Spectrum newspaper.
Meanwhile, a Chicago man pleaded guilty last week to leaving a death threat for Flake after the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
