"Although court documents did not identify the targeted lawmaker, a spokesperson for Nevada Democratic Sen. Jacky Rosen, who is Jewish, confirmed the messages were left with her office," CBS News reported.
"Threats against public officials should be taken seriously. Senator Rosen trusts the U.S. Attorney's office and federal law enforcement to handle this matter," the spokesperson said in a statement.

"Additionally, on October 18, at the Lloyd D. George Courthouse in Las Vegas, Miller stated that he was going to see the United States Senator," Fox 5 Vegas reported.
"He refused to fully cooperate with a Court Security Officer and was denied entry into the courthouse. After being refused entry, he 'became agitated and started yelling and shouting profanities,' according to court documents," it noted.
Miller has been charged with threatening a federal official. He is scheduled for a hearing on November 13, according to court records.
The threats come as concerns grow nationwide and globally over antisemitic incidents following the start of the war in Israel. Hamas terrorists killed over 1,400 people in the most deadly attack on Jews since the Holocaust, with Israel now responding through military efforts in the Gaza Strip.
Miller's arrest has caught one terrible incident but fears grow that other antisemitic acts are likely to continue in the days ahead.
