Nebraska man pleads guilty to threatening election official

A Nebraska man pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court, admitting he posted threatening messages about an election official in Colorado.

A Nebraska man pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court, admitting he posted threatening messages about an election official in Colorado. 

Travis Ford, 42, of Lincoln, told a federal judge that he posted the messages on Instagram after the 2020 election. According to court documents, one said, “Do you feel safe? You shouldn’t. Do you think Soros will/can protect you?”

Another said, “Your security detail is far too thin and incompetent to protect you. The world is unpredictable these days....anything can happen to anyone,” followed by a man-shrugging emoji.

The election official was not named in court documents, but the threats appeared as comments last year in a posting on the personal Instagram page of Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, a Democrat. Ford believed she mismanaged the 2020 election, according to court documents.

Investigators said she “expressed fear after viewing these two comments and provided them to law enforcement.”
