Republican Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) knew the left was angry about Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation. But unfortunately, he learned first-hand on Saturday just how angry Democrats are.
Gardner revealed to Fox News Sunday that after he voted to confirm Kavanaugh, his wife received a graphic text message with a video depicting a beheading. Additionally, he said his family was doxxed and some of their personal information was made public.
What are the details?

Gardner's press secretary, Casey Contres, confirmed the reporting to the Daily Caller News Foundation. Contres added that Gardner's office may provide additional details on the threat at a later time.
It wasn't immediately clear if there were any suspects, or if law enforcement knew the source of the disturbing message.
As Fox News noted, Gardner voiced his support for Kavanaugh in July after President Donald Trump nominated him. Gardner reiterated his support for Kavanaugh after the FBI concluded its "supplemental" investigation into Kavanaugh's background last week.
Unfortunately, Gardner isn't the only GOP senator to be doxxed during the Kavanaugh charade. Last month, while Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee where he denied allegations of sexual assault, GOP Sens. Mike Lee (Utah), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), and Orrin Hatch (Utah) had their personal information posted to their public Wikipedia pages.
A Democratic intern, who most recently worked for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), was arrested last week for leaking the senators' information.
