FBI is Fearing The Power That The Pen May Ignite

Investigators do not see threats of violence in the group’s message, but fear the broad call for removal of top state officials could lead others to act out violently.
The FBI expects all 50 governors will eventually receive such letters.
Governors whose offices reported getting the letters included Jennifer Granholm of Michigan, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Chet Culver of Iowa, Dave Heineman of Nebraska, Jim Gibbons of Nevada, Brad Henry of Oklahoma, Mike Rounds of South Dakota, Bob McDonnell of Virginia, and Gary Herbert of Utah, where officials stepped up security in response to the letter.
In Nevada, screening machines for visitors and packages were added to the main entrance to the state Capitol as a precaution.
“We’re not really overly concerned, but at the same time we don’t want to sit back and do nothing and regret it,” Deputy Chief of Staff Lynn Hettrick said.
Granholm spokeswoman Liz Boyd said federal authorities had alerted the governor that such a letter might be coming, and it arrived Monday. Boyd, who described the letter as “non-threatening,” said it was opened by a staffer and immediately turned over to the Michigan State Police.
Jindal’s office confirmed that the governor had received one of the letters and directed questions to the Louisiana State Police.
“They called us as they do for any letter that’s out of the norm,” said Lt. Doug Cain, a state police spokesman. He declined to provide specifics about the letter, but said, “not knowing the group and the information contained in the letter warranted state police to review it.”
The FBI warning comes at a time of heightened attention to far-right extremist groups after the arrest of nine Christian militia members last weekend accused of plotting violence.
