Liberal Terrorism? Kari Lake Campaign Office Receives Suspicious White Powder, Threatening Messages; FBI Called

On Sunday, Breitbart and others reported that the campaign office of Arizona Republican gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake received two envelopes with “suspicious white power” and “abusive messages.”

The Fox report noted:

A spokesman for the Phoenix Police Department confirmed to Fox News Digital that officers “responded to a found property call at an office building near 40th Street and Camelback Road.”

Asked specifically if that’s what was found, Krynsky responded, “The items were suspicious in nature and remain under investigation. Our patrol units were there until approximately 5 a.m.”

According to Breitbart:

The FBI and police were called to and were at one of Lake’s campaign offices from 10:00 p.m. Saturday to 5:00 a.m. Sunday, after a staffer had received two envelopes that contained a “suspicious white powder” and “threatening messages,” the campaign is considering an “attack,” according to DailyMail.

The report explained that Lake’s campaign believes this was a “terroristic attack, trying to intimidate Kari and the campaign staff.”

A DailyMail source familiar with the campaign also told the publication that one of the staffers “opened up an envelope that had a suspicious white powder in it and had a letter in there with a bunch of vulgarities and ranting and raving about Kari,” adding that the employee noticed there was another package “exactly like the first one she had opened and she reported it.”

A hazmat team and the bomb squad responded to the call, Breitbart added, and the FBI reportedly took the substance for analysis.

Twitchy tells us that “…Democrats are already claiming she sent these items to herself. Keep in mind, they always accuse Republicans of doing what they’ve done.”

Kari Lake issued a statement:

Yesterday, a member of the Kari Lake staff opened an envelope delivered to our campaign office that contained suspicious white powder.

It was one of two envelopes that were confiscated by law enforcement and sent to professionals at Quantico for examination, and we are awaiting details. The staff member is currently under medical supervision.

Just two days before Election Day, our campaign headquarters remains shut down. We look forward to law enforcement completing their investigation as quickly as possible. Rest assured, we are taking this security threat incredibly seriously and we are thankful for the Phoenix PD, FBI, first responders, bomb squad, and HazMat crews that responded to this incident. In the meantime, know that our resolve has never been higher and we cannot be intimidated.

We continue to push full speed ahead to win this election on Tuesday.

Is this another case of liberal terrorism?  It sure looks that way.
