TULSA, Okla. – An Oklahoma man is facing charges after allegedly sending threatening messages to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

According to the Tulsa World, 31-year-old Charles Moreland allegedly sent the messages to Reid through his congressional website.

Authorities say Moreland told Reid to resign or “face stern, harsh, unimaginable consequences to him and his family.”

In 2013, Moreland was being investigated for letters sent to The White House, which threatened to “kill people” if they didn’t stop monitoring his phone calls.

Moreland was indicted on three counts for threatening to murder a federal official, threatening Reid’s family and transmitting threats across state lines.

If convicted, he could face up to 25 years in prison.
