Washington DC (KMOX) – Her office isn’t commenting but extra security is in place for Sen. Claire McCaskill.

The added security follows a comment by  St. Louis area activist Scott Boston who told a Tea Party gathering in Springfield, Missouri last Thursday, quote “We have to get Claire McCaskill out. We have to kill the Claire Bear ladies and gentlemen.”

Sources say that got the attention of  the U.S. Capitol Police who sough extra protection for McCaskill.   Boston says he did not intend the comment as a threat.

McCaskill’s office tells KMOX news, they have no comment on matters of the Senator’s personal safety.
