Texas Woman Arrested in Connection With Ricin-Laced Letters

Federal agents have arrested a Texas woman in connection with several ricin-laced letters sent last month to President Obama, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York and a Washington lobbyist who works on the mayor’s gun control campaign, according to three law enforcement officials.

The woman, Shannon Richardson, 35, was charged with mailing a threatening communication, according to the officials. Ms. Richardson, who was accused of mailing the letters on May 20, was arrested on Friday in Mount Pleasant, Tex. She is the wife of a man in New Boston, Tex., who was questioned by agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the days after the letters were discovered.

1. Well, you knew it had to be a mental midget somewhere in Dixie

where castor bushes are common parts of the landscaping. I am not a bit surprised it's just another idiot from Texas.

She's pregnant and is handling ricin.
She's an actress.

From the notes in the letters - it was all for guns.
