The office of Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) has been locked down due to the presence of a suspicious package covered with swastikas, according to reports. KVOA reports that an "envelope containing white powder" was mailed to Grijalva's Tuscon office. Bomb technicians are reportedly on hand.
Grijalva told KVOA that the substance is toxic and Keith Olbermann tweeted that the Congressman would confirm that durring an appearance on "Countdown."

Nope. I hadn't heard that. Horrible. I hope they are able to catch who did it and prosecute them.
On another note someone sent envelopes w/ white powder in them to a bunch of local schools. I know it's not connected, but it's not just politicians and their offices that this happens to. I think I remember Gov. Perry's office in TX receiving an envelope w/ white powder in it a couple years ago.
There's no expiration date on stupid.

No kidding. 14 Houston schools got envelopes w/ powder. Most of them elementary schools. I figure most of the time this stuff ends up being a prank, but you can't mess around with that sort of threat. It just wastes tax payer funds and resources. I wonder how many other people in need were neglected because these resources were dedicated to these threats. Ridiculous.

I wouldn't assume that it's neonazi groups until it can be proven.
It would be nice if the people responsible would be caught and prosecuted.
