Rep. Markey Asked for Police Patrols at Colo. Home

Thursday, 25 Mar 2010 07:32 AM

Fort Collins police say Rep. Betsy Markey's office has requested increased patrols around her Colorado home out of fear it might be vandalized because she supported health care legislation.

Sgt. Joel Tower told KMGH-TV police were asked to monitor the democrat's Fort Collins home because of her vote but Tower says Markey's office did not elaborate if they'd receive threats.

Markey spokesman Ben Marter did not return a call Wednesday. Markey staffer Anne Caprara told KDVR-TV there's concern "that something's going to happen."

At least 10 members of Congress have reported some sort of threat as of Wednesday because they supported health care.
