Texas Man Sentenced to 3 1/2 Years in Prison for Threatening Maricopa County Election Officials

Frederick Goltz, a Texas man, was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in federal prison for making threats against election officials in Maricopa County, Arizona. He posted the name, address, phone number, and fax machine of a Maricopa County official on two websites, as well as threatening the official and their children. This was part of a larger trend of threats against election officials across the country after the 2020 election, and U.S. Attorney Gregg Sofer said that these threats will be taken seriously and prosecuted.
