An Alaska man has been arrested and federally charged for allegedly making interstate threats to kidnap and injure a current US Senator.
Arther Graham, 46, reportedly threatened to murder an unidentified senator and ‘wear her skin’ as clothes on a web form page submission in September.
Graham could be imprisoned for five years if found guilty of the federal charges.
While court documents do not name or state where the senator is from, they identify the senator as female.

According to court documents, the threat read: ‘Well, it’s after business hours and my landlady hasn’t delivered the eviction papers yet like she promised.
‘She DID tell me to start looking somewhere else to live, so now I’m legally obligated to do that.
‘I’m in the dark here. Until I get new information [United States Senator 1], my plan is ima’ hunt you down, cut the flesh off your body and wear your skin like clothes.
‘I’ll live inside of YOU [United States Senator 1]. I may as well because I ain’t got nowhere else to live.
‘The bank is taking my parents’ house. When I inherit my mom’s municipal bonds, I’m going to use ilthem as kindling to start my homeless-person campfire, when I inevitably become a homeless person like I was when I was a little boy.
‘Also, I’m gonna cut off your skin and wear it as clothes. Oops I said that already. Someone call the police. Deiter is dreaming about his mother again.’
Court documents revealed that FBI agents interviewed Graham at his home in Kenai and he admitted to sending the email to the senator
While the only female senator in Alaska is Lisa Murkowski, a Republican, it is unlikely the threats were made against her as Graham is charged with making interstate threats which indicates aspects of the crime cross state lines.
Murkowski’s representatives declined to comment or confirm the threat was directed towards her.
Graham had identified himself in the web submission using his complete name, email address, phone number and home address.
Court documents revealed that FBI agents interviewed Graham at his home in Kenai and he admitted to sending the email to the senator.
He also told the agents that he knew that sending the message was against the law.
According to Anchorage Daily News, Graham had sent several profane and threatening messages in 2019 and 2020 to a New York-based journalist who was known for his coverage of a sex cult.
The journalist did not press any charges on Graham at the time.
His first trial hearing for allegedly threatening the senator will take place tomorrow and it is unknown how he intends to plea in court.
