Rep Pete King Gets Pig’s Foot in Mail

Hey…they only sent one foot. What kind of meal is that?

From ABC News;

A bloody pig’s foot was sent to the chairman of the House committee on Homeland Security, Rep. Pete King, R-New York, along with an anti-Semitic note referencing King’s contentious hearings last month examining the radicalization of American-Muslim youths.

The package was intercepted before it reached King’s DC office, at a postal screening facility off Capitol Hill that radiates and searches congressional mail for explosives and chemicals before being delivered to an office, according to a congressional source familiar with the investigation.

It was not immediately clear where the package was mailed from or when it was intercepted by screeners.

U.S. Capitol Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Schneider would not confirm the contents of the package but told ABC News “We have an active open investigation re: this incident and are working with postal inspectors.”

Update; Dan Collins has more;

Over a month of death threats to Republican legislators in Wisconsin, and no national coverage.

Some douchebag sends Rep. Peter King a pig’s foot, and it’s a national fucking emergency.

Authorities intercepted a parcel this morning addressed to Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) containing a bloody pig’s foot and a derogatory message, a source has confirmed to CBS News.
