Posted on Mar 25, 2010

Take New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, for example.

The office of Representative Anthony Weiner on Thursday received a threatening letter containing an unidentified white powder, his office said.
“Earlier today an envelope containing white powder and a threatening letter was delivered to my community office in Kew Gardens,” the Democratic congressman said in a statement issued by his office.
