FBI: NY congressman gets “threatening” letter
(Reuters) – The office of Representative Anthony Weiner received a letter that “could be interpreted as threatening,” the FBI said on Thursday, and local media reported the letter contained an unidentified white powder.
Authorities were responding to the office of the Democratic Congressman in the New York City borough of Queens, and no other details were immediately available, said FBI spokesman Richard Kolko.
The FBI said on Wednesday it was investigating threats made against House Democratic leaders during the weekend’s health-care reform voting. Weiner voted in favor of the legislation.
