Karen Handel's neighbors get threatening letter with white powder

Karen Handel’s neighbors told to take a ‘whiff of white powder’ in threatening letter

"Roswell police and the FBI are investigating after envelopes with 'white powder' were found in congressional candidate Karen Handel’s mailbox and at four others in her subdivision.

The call came in about 1 p.m. for Roxburgh Drive off Old Alabama Road in the Willow Springs neighborhood, police said.

'This afternoon we had some suspicious packages delivered to our house and to our neighbors,' Handel said in a statement. 'The packages contained threatening letters and a suspicious substance. The police were quickly notified and the street is now being blocked off. We will continue to coordinate with law enforcement as necessary.'"

"Ossoff campaign manager Keenan Pontoni told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that his campaign has also received multiple threats of violence in recent days, which he said have been reported to police. The Ossoff campaign hired a security detail on Thursday as well as a result of the escalating tensions."

Local TV station WAGA Fox-5 received a similar letter, postmarked Greenville, SC. The envelope contained baking powder.

Color me suspicious. This close to voting day, I'm not sure this episode passes the smell test.

2. Sounds fake to me

I think they are grasping at straws now.
Hope the police find that the Handel campaign planted the evidence.
