OSBI investigating threats against state lawmakers

Teachers rally for better education funding at the Oklahoma State Capitol on April 2, 2018.

OKLAHOMA CITY (KXII) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said Thursday they are investigating potential threats made against state lawmakers.

They say so far special agents have opened three cases. Agents believe there will be a fourth case soon.

The OBSI says it assigns a special agent to the Capitol during the legislative session to investigate threats against public officials and, that it has original jurisdiction to investigate this crime.

After interviewing Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin earlier this week, CBS News reporter Omar Villafranca tweeted Fallin mentioned "outside" groups with teachers at the state Capitol.

When he mentioned the National Education Association and West Virginia teachers, Fallin said, "Antifa has been here."

Antifa is short for anti-fascists, a group is known to be violent with far left leaning beliefs.
