Still More of That 'New Civility'

Bloody Pig's Foot Sent to Rep. Peter King.

From CBS News:
"Authorities intercepted a parcel this morning addressed to Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) containing a bloody pig's foot and a derogatory message, a source has confirmed to CBS News.

The parcel was intercepted at the Congressional mail facility in Landover, Maryland, where mail sent to lawmakers is screened for security risks"
NBC reports that the 'derogatory message' was an anti-semetic screed.

A commenter at WZ says, "It was most likely a leftist. An Islamist would have sent a bomb."

The CBS story then turns into a total tool and complains that "CAIR is a target of King's hearings."

Then there's this:

FEC Approves Use of Campaign Funds for Congressman Terry’s Home Security.

From The Hill:
"The Federal Election Commission has approved the use of up to $5,000 in campaign funds to bolster security at the home of Rep. Lee Terry (R-Neb.) following a recommendation from Capitol Police....

Efforts to strengthen lawmaker security have been stepped up in the months following the January shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.). Capitol Police have briefed members on how they can add additional layers of protection, including being in closer contact with local law enforcement. "
The exact nature of the threats against Congressman Terry were not disclosed.

Strange days, indeed.
