'Threatening note' found outside Sen. Dean Heller's office

A "threatening note" was found Sunday morning outside the Las Vegas office of Sen. Dean Heller (R), police said Monday.

Officers were notified at around 9 a.m. that a burglar alarm had gone off at the office building where Heller has an office, and when they arrived, they did not find any signs of a break-in at his office, but they did discover the note taped to his door. Police are investigating the note, but said they will not release what it says, as the incident is under investigation.

Heller is an undecided vote on the Senate health-care bill, and a person in law enforcement told The Nevada Independent the note stated that the writer would lose his health care if Heller voted in favor of the Republicans' bill to repeal ObamaCare, and if he was going to die, he would take Heller along with him.
