Members of Congess reported a record-high number of threats to their safety in 2010, according to The Hill.

According to documents obtained by The Hill through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the FBI investigated 26 threats of violence against lawmakers (and occasionally, their family members) in 2010.

Almost half of the threats came in the contentious weeks before and after the health care reform bill was signed into law on March 23, 2010. Among those targeted include House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, former Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper, Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
