A 64-year-old man was arrested Wednesday after making a death threat towards Rep. Andrew Garbarino, R-N.Y., police reported. Kenneth Gasper from Long Island has been charged with aggravated harassment for threats made towards Garbarino, according to Nassau County police. The threats came after Garbarino, who represents parts of Long Island, voted for the bipartisan infrastructure bill, a $1.2 trillion package that's part of President Joe Biden's economic agenda. He was one of 13 House Republicans to vote in favor of the bill. Gasper called Garbarino's district office and cursed at staff when they answered the call. Gasper then called Garbarino a RINO, which stands for "Republicans in name only." Gasper also threatened to kill Garbarino on the street if he saw him.

"I've had the police at my house, and they're more concerned about these [threats] that have been coming in than the ones I've gotten in the past," Garbarino told The New York Post.

"There are members of Congress that are fundraising off of their misinformation and attacking us, and it's causing us to get death threats on the other side." House GOP members who voted for infrastructure bill face criticism

Since the vote on infrastructure last week, several Republicans faced backlash for their support, including from their fellow GOP colleagues.

"RINOS just passed this wasteful $1.2 trillion dollar infrastructure' bill. Pelosi did not have the votes in her party to pass this garbage. Time to name names and hold these fake republicans accountable," said Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo.

This is today's GOP. No ideas...just death threats and insults.

You guys built that.

More from the article...

...Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., tweeted out the phone numbers of the 13 Republicans following the vote. She said that they "handed over their voting cards to Nancy Pelosi to pass Joe Biden's Communist takeover of America" through the infrastructure package.

The move resulted in Upton, one of those in favor of the bill, to receive a voicemail from an anonymous caller which said, ""I hope your f------ family dies. I hope everybody in your f------ staff dies, you f------ piece of f------ s---. Traitor!"

Upton told USA TODAY on Friday that a majority of the threatening calls he has received have come from Georgia, Greene's home state....

Rep Greene seems to have some unresolved issues.
