Police Investigating Letters With White Powder Sent To Homes Of Georgia Republican And Her Neighbors

Concurrent with the Wednesday shooting of GOP Rep. Steve Scalise, former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, who is running against Democrat Jon Ossoff in a hotly-contested 6th Congressional District Special Election, has been targeted along with her neighbors by letters containing a white powdery substance and calling Handel a "dirty fascist."

The verbiage in the letters was foul:

As a result of the letters, Handel’s neighborhood has been blocked off by police, as the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Mike Petchenik of WSB-TC reported police were going house to house to check the mailboxes:

Handel herself received such a letter:

Handel, who was the first Republican to serve as her state’s Secretary of State, said, "This afternoon we had some suspicious packages delivered to our house and to our neighbors. The packages contained threatening letters and a suspicious substance. The police were quickly notified and street is now being blocked off. We will continue to coordinate with law enforcement as necessary."

Handel is a hard-core conservative; here are some statements showing how staunch a conservative she is for 2017:

  1. “It is not the federal government’s role to dictate health care choices and decisions to Americans.”
  2. “I think that for a child to be in a household  —  in a family in a household with a situation where the parents are not married, as in one man and one woman, is not the best household for a child … I’ve made it abundantly clear that I think that marriage is between a man and a woman.” 
  3. “The bad guys have to be stopped. One of the 1st steps in stopping them is ending government funding to Planned Parenthood.”
