Several family members of Colorado Republican Sen. Cory Gardner have had their names and home addresses made public, and Gardner’s wife has received a “gruesome” video of a beheading.

A spokesman for Gardner has confirmed to The Daily Caller News Foundation that his family has been doxxed and graphic footage of a beheading was sent via text message to his wife. The Colorado senator — who has invoked furor from liberal activists for voting in favor of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — first revealed the doxxing to Fox News.

“The tweet is accurate,” Gardner press secretary Casey Contres said to TheDCNF on Sunday, also suggesting that his office may go into further detail at a later time.

Gardner is not the first Republican senator to be doxxed amid the Kavanaugh nomination frenzy.

Jackson A. Cosko, 27, a congressional staffer who most recently worked for Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, was arrested on Wednesday for releasing the home addresses of Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch. Cosko has been charged with making public restricted personal information, witness tampering, threats in interstate communications, unauthorized access of a government computer, second-degree burglary, identity theft, and faces up to nearly 50 years in prison.
