Toxic powder sent to Arizona congressman (Sent to Democrat)
MSNBC ^ | 10-21-2010 | MSNBC

Posted on 10/21/2010 6:22:00 PM PDT by Colonel Kangaroo

TUCSON, Ariz. — White powder delivered in an swastika-covered envelope to the Tucson, Ariz., office of Rep. Raul Grijalva is a toxic substance, the Democratic congressman said the FBI told him Thursday afternoon.

It was not confirmed exactly what substance was mailed to Grijalva's offices, located at the 800 block of East 22nd Street, NBC affiliate KVOA reported.

Mailing toxic powder is a terrible thing to do no matter who did it, but I doubt anybody at MSNBC will consider the possibility that just maybe somebody sent that package to discredit conservatives. Such a development would tend to "energize" the base.

Well, anything is possible, but I suspect that he had it sent to himself.

He most likely sent it to himself.

Hmmm, you may be right. Seems this Congressman's reelection may be in doubt:

Grijalva's troubles mounting

The Cook Political Report on Wednesday declared the race between Rep. Raul Grijalva and GOP challenger Ruth McClung a toss-up. We in Arizona have seen trouble coming Raul's way since last spring when he called for a boycott of his own state in the wake of Senate Bill 1070. But let's face it, his district is 2-1 Democrat. Who ever thought that Grijalva could actually lose?

A very good point. The swastika would be a good indicator that is the case.

Dirty tricks, burn the Reichstag politics; would be expected at this point.

When one wants someone to open an envelop containing a toxic substance, one would want it to appear innocuous, not decorated with swastikas. This liberal dummy should hire smarter staff members.

I’m surprised they didn’t send it in a tea bag.

My thoughts exactly. Grijalva receives a suspicious powder the very week his reelection race gets rated a tossup by pundits? How convenient.

The swastikas strongly suggest that it was an arranged provocation.

Betcha Grijalva knew it was coming.

Ummmmm....

I know that MSNBC is a ‘reputable’ news source, and all - but has anybody seen anything like a second-source confirmation that this actually happened??

I note that in the article excerpt, the only quotes were from the congresscritter’s office - nothing directly from Law Enforcement....

Suspicious.....

i got a breaking news update around 4:30 from KFYI. they were reporting from AZCentral (the mess that it is) who was just reposting from POLITICO. all the wacky left nut jobs are posting on AZCentral that it’s a “white, racist, teabagger”.

He invited the press to be there when the postman delivered the letter.. do'h! :)

Seriously, I think most postal employees would have alerted the postal inspectors.. a swastika-covered envelope? Maybe a strange smell? This dog don't hunt. IMO.

Mailed it to themselves, absolutely NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.

Trying to creat a bogus narrative, and change the subject (based on Victimness Mentality) because of the difficult space they are currently now. Desperation time.

Expect to see this kidn of "false flag op" in more neck and neck Dem districts where the GOP might take the seat......
