Sorry, but I just have to call BS on this one. I'm getting the feeling this "wave" of threats won't subside until every elected Democrat shows up with a "threat" of their own.
A suspicious package containing white powder and a "threatening letter" was delivered to Rep. Anthony Weiner's office Thursday, police sources said.Now if what Weiner is holding is the letter in question and it contained a "suspicious" powder, then why on earth is he holding it? And why does he appear happy about it?
Emergency service units evacuated the Democratic congressman's fifth-floor office in Kew Gardens, officials said.
The letter appeared to be related to the heated debate over national health care reform, sources told the Daily News.
"They came over the loudspeaker: 'Don't be alarmed. Just the fifth floor is being evacuated,'" said Kathy Farrell, 44, who works at an orthopedic surgeon's office next door.
"They weren't in too much of a rush to get us out."
The package was received about 1 p.m. No one was injured, but police said nine people were exposed and have undergone decontamination treatment.
The Department of Environmental Protection's health lab will analyze the powder.
Weiner issued a statement saying, "Earlier today an envelope containing white powder and a threatening letter was delivered to my community office in Kew Gardens.
