Top New Mexico elections regulator says she was threatened

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's top elections regulator says she received threats to her safety via an email and telephone calls to her offices and that the FBI has been notified. Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver on Tuesday told The Associated Press that there have been three instances of threats against her within the last few weeks and that federal investigators have been alerted. The FBI in Albuquerque did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Toulouse Oliver previously went into hiding in response to online threats during the aftermath of the 2020 election.
