Rep. Anthony Weiner’s Office and Several Others Evacuated In Response to Package Containing White Powder

Today, a package of white powder accompanied by a threatening letter was sent to the Queens office of Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY):

A  preliminary review shows the letter in part complained about the historic health care legislation passed by Congress this week, according to the source.

Weiner’s office is on the fifth floor of a building on Kew Gardens Road in Queens. Law enforcement officials said a doctor’s office and a law office on the floor were among those evacuated as a precaution. Nine people were inside Weiner’s office at the time.

The powder is still being analyzed to see if it’s a hazardous substance.
