Cops investigating pig's foot sent to Rep. Peter King's office

From NBC's Luke Russert
A Capitol Hill source tells NBC that the Washington D.C. office of Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) was sent a bloody pig's foot with a note attached that contained anti-Semitic ramblings.

The note referenced King's controversial hearing last month about Muslim extremism within the United States.

The Capitol Hill police are treating this incident as an "open investigation."

The pig's foot was found when the package it was contained in was radiated and scanned for explosives. The package never actually reached King's office and was intercepted beforehand.

3. This makes Rep King a hero
in certain circles. He probably bought it and sent it to himself. The politicians are always looking for a way to play the angle.

25. Yeah, we know. There's always at least ONE in every crowd.

With Republicans and Conservatives, sending death threats is endemic.

See:
http://tinyurl.com/TeaTerror
http://tinyurl.com/TeaTerror2

When ONE person does it to ONE Republican, suddenly people are signing-up with brand spanking new accounts to post that ONE incident all over Liberal message boards.

And by the way, this has already been discussed here.

death threats against gop in wisconsin
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Because unlike Conservatives, Liberals value TRUTH even when it is unpleasant.

So, you can go crawl back under your rock now. Your exercise was pointless and redundant.

And since the person who uploaded that video has since REMOVED it, your exercise was DOUBLY futile.
