Call 2013 the year of ricin. From POLITICO:
A ricin-laced letter addressed to President Barack Obama was intercepted before reaching the president, the Secret Service confirmed Thursday. The letter was similar to those sent last week to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the gun control group he backs.
“The White House mail screening facility intercepted a letter addressed to the White House that were similar to letters previously addressed to Mayor Bloomberg in New York,” Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan said in a statement to POLITICO. “This letter has been turned over to the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force for testing and investigation.”
