Skip to comments.Letter sent to Sen. Roger Wicker tests positive for ricin

An envelope sent to the U.S. Senate office of Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) included a substance that has tested positive for Ricin, two sources say.
It was not immediately clear when the envelope was received. But it arrived in a Senate mail facility, which has now been closed for more testing. All congressional mail will now be processed through the U.S. House facility.
The Senate went into recess shortly after 6 p.m. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and FBI Director Robert Mueller were briefing senators on Tuesday afternoon. A DHS official said that the briefing was intended to address cyber-security, but that the letter involving Ricin came up.

...Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.)...
at this point, a real president would suggest that we all buy more ammo
Does the return address say “Bill Ayers” or any other member of the Weather Underground..maybe they want to make a comeback
the left is all HATERS.....like Rush says, anywhere that marxism raises its ugly head, there will be violence, because underneath their peace, love, social justice mantra they just want anyone opposing gone, period...
Chris Matthews sent it.
In fact virtually all attacks on conservatives are done by proglodyte mediatards.
or maybe it was Beck.....
How can we buy more ammo when the DHS buys it all?
The senators were told about this by Homeland Security during a meeting. Sounds fishy to me.
some magazine glues contains a chemical that can mimic ricin in tests. chalk this up to an overabundance of caution, IMO..
They should have sent a Bic lighter.
Wicker was one of the Rs that voted for cloture on the gun debate last week. This could easily be spun into a narrative against “gun nuts.”
Sounds like an angry white Democrat to me. Guess I’ll go look
at what he’s been voting on and how lately.
Although I’d rather pay someone to do it, I’m tired.
Did he require any arm-twistin or was he a skunk in advance about it, do you know?
Didn’t we have to put up with this liberal style BS after 9/11?
Like a congressman actually opens or reads mail. Obama on the other had reds all the letters he gets at the State Of the Union they should have sent it to Obama.
