Anne Caprara said the calls came on Saturday before the House cast its final vote on health care reform. She said in the first, the caller said to one of Markey's staff members, "better hope I don't run into you in a dark alley with a knife, a club or a gun."

In another instance, a caller said something like "better tell your boss that she better be careful when she comes back here to Colorado."

Markey was one of the Democrats who had voted against the original House health care reform bill last year before voting for changes to the Senate measure over the weekend. She is in her first term representing the 4th Congressional District in Colorado.
