According to court records, Rep. Matt Getz, R-Fla., over the phone earlier this year. A man accused of making death threats in the U.S. was arrested last week in federal indictment.
Prosecutors say that on January 9 – three days after the Capitol siege – Eugene Heulsmann called Getz’s office phone call to endanger the lawmaker. “Tell [M.G.] Tell her to watch your kids, to watch her back, according to the indictment,” Heulsmann reportedly sneaked into the receiver.
“I’m coming for him, he’s gonna die f-king… I’m gonna die f-king… Watch your back, I’m coming for you. I’m gonna put you and I a bullet. I I’m gonna shoot one of your f—king kids too,” the man reportedly snarled.

Getz confirmed that he was the victim identified in the indictment as MG. The congressman told Granthshala News Digital that he handed over the recorded voicemail to Capitol police.
Heulsman was indicted in May on a felony charge of threatening to injure another man in the Northern District of Florida — but his whereabouts were unknown at the time. A judge sealed the indictment until officers tracked down and apprehended Heulsman in California, the court recorded the state.
Heulsman is due to make his initial appearance in Pensacola federal court this Friday.
