SENATE CLOSED – RICIN CONFIRMED
Tests have confirmed that a white powder found in a mailroom in Senate Majority Leader Bill FristÃ¢€™s office is the deadly poison ricin, the Tennessee Republican announced Tuesday on the Senate floor. Three Senate office buildings remained closed as other mail was removed for testing.
It’s rather amazing that, with all the precautions that are being taken with congressional mail, that this stuff is still getting through.
Update (1408) Alex Knapp has some interesting conjecture on this.
