The decision by Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins to support Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court has made her a target for the far left. Police were called to her Bangor home on Monday night to investigate a letter which reportedly said it contained Ricin. Collins was not home at the time.
Roll Call reports:
Police Investigate ‘Ricin Letter’ at Sen. Susan Collins’ Home
Republican Sen. Susan Collins will be able to spend Monday night at her residence in Bangor, Maine, after a suspicious letter was received by her husband there.
“Senator Collins’s husband, Tom Daffron, today received a threatening letter that the writer claimed was contaminated with ricin, a highly hazardous substance which was used in a previous attack against the United States Senate,” Collins spokeswoman Annie Clark said in a statement.
Clark said law enforcement was still investigating the source of the letter, as well as testing the substance involved. It was not immediately known if the letter actually contained the poison.
“Mr. Daffron, their dog, and parts of their home were quarantined while the crime lab undertook an analysis of the premises,” Clark said. “The affected areas have now been cleared, and Senator Collins and Mr. Daffron will be able to remain at home tonight.”
In a statement themselves, the Maine senator and her husband thanked the many military, police and fire agencies involved in responding to the incident.
This political season has really brought out the crazy in some people!
