Palin's Office Receives White Powder

This almost seems like a ritualistic rite of passage these days.
A letter containing white powder was sent to Gov. Sarah Palin. It was not immediately known if the incident was connected to letters received by governors in seven other states on Monday. Palin spokeswoman Sharon Leighow said the letter was sent to Palin's office in Juneau and was received Tuesday. But Eric Gonzalez, an FBI spokesman in Anchorage, said they are investigating since the cases are so similar.

Gonzalez said the powder will be submitted to a lab, but did not immediately know if it had undergone field testing at the state Capitol.

Governors of Alabama, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana and Rhode Island also had letters with white powder sent to them this week.
All of those were postmarked in Texas.

So this makes eight governors. I guess the other 42 ought to be on the lookout, although the clown in Illinois might welcome the distraction right about now.
