The Justice Department on Jan. 21 charged a Texas man with sending threats to election and other government officials in Georgia. This is the first criminal case brought by the Justice Department’s Election Threats Task Force, which was created in June 2021 to prosecute those making threats against election workers. The indictment alleges that Chad Stark posted threatening messages to Craigslist on Jan. 5, 2021, saying it was  “time to kill” an election official. Stark is charged with one count of communicating interstate threats.
