WASHINGTON, May 30 (UPI) — A letter addressed to President Obama that has been intercepted may contain the toxic substance ricin, the FBI said Thursday.

A FBI spokesman said the agency was investigating a “suspicious letter” found at a White House mail facility Thursday morning, The Washington Post reported.

The FBI spokesman said test results weren’t yet known.

A ricin-laced letter was mailed to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg earlier this week. Earlier this year, several ricin-tainted letters were mailed to other Washington political figures, including Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss.

    As much as I dislike Obama he is still our president and deserves respect because of it. I hope they catch whoever did this and throw the book at them.

      I would advise the Secret Service to investigate this guy. There’s no excuse for that.
