Goodness… Political Wire: “Nevada assemblyman Steven Brooks (D) is in jail, arrested for threatening Speaker-elect Marilyn Kirkpatrick (D), the Las Vegas Sun reports.

“Authorities are investigating death threats against Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.), according to an aide to the freshman congressman,” The Hill writes. “Mullin’s chief of staff, Karl Ahlgren, said that Mullin and his family are being protected, the Associated Press reported.”
