ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A special security detail has been assigned to County Executive Candidate Steve Stenger after police say they have received legitimate threats to his safety.

Threats against Stenger were first seen on social media after he received criticism from many protesters at last week’s council meeting.

Many protesters questioned Stenger’s ties to Prosecutor Bill McCulloch. Stenger’s republican opponent, Rick Stream, was also offered a security detail, but declined.
