But he also sent it to the usurper, Cornyn and Levin. Kind of random.

A suspect has been identified. Of course, the media continues to ignore the mail bomb that was sent to Sheriff Joe Arpaio last week.

Well, the media only now got shamed into covering the abortion trial. Give it time, they may yet give traction to the attack on Joe Arpaio.

He sure doesn’t sound very bright. My guess is he is a mental case. Signed his stupid initials. I bet it isn’t ricin after all is said and done either.

I was looking for a Facebook profile to see his interests and likes to get an idea where he stands on the issues. No luck yet.

Yup! Finally. Ricin has been manufactured by a white supremacist, previously. Not to mention a Bulgarian assassin with an umbrella.

It's from Castor Beans. One of the most trivial deadly substances to produce. You don't exactly need a chemical weapons lab and a PhD. It's actually more complicated to make Meth and plenty of Good 'ol Boys do that.

Though as another poster mentioned I would not be surprised that further testing reveals it's not actually Ricin - testing for it accurately is much harder than making it, and there are a lot of false positives.

Had to get the white guy out there with lots of media focusing on how evil and scary he is and how he is tied to these right-wing groups and some evangelical church-going Deacon......blah, blah, blah!

Then tomorrow or better yet, late Friday, announce that those two suspects in the Boston bombings are "home-grown Muslims living in Boston!"

I think part of the FBI questioning should be how he got a letter postmarked April 8th delivered so quickly.

Wicker was in one group of Republicans who voted for a cloture vote (an early gun control vote) that most Republicans and conservatives opposed. And certainly the Dims who got the letters would have voted for cloture.

Sixteen Republican Senators Vote For Cloture On Gun Control Bill

The envelopes were mailed before that vote, but the Wicker might have stated his intentions beforehand. That's a vote from Wicker that surprised some.

Then again, that might not be related.

Tupelo is where the American Family Association is based. I listen to their radio station AFR all the time.

They are listed as a hate group by the commie pervs at the Southern Poverty Law Center. I wouldn’t put it past them to try and link this guy to AFA.

My first thought! Hard to believe, but early in his acting career he played semi-hearthrobs in horse operas. I always liked ol’ Festus.....

I did a Google search for Kenneth Curtis Tupelo Ricin and a pic showed up in the search next to an article. HOWEVER, I think it is of the author so I could be wrong. If so my apologies for jumping the gun.
