A Green Party member is in hot water over a threatening letter she sent to Maine Senator Susan Collins during the Kavanaugh hearings.
Suzanne E. Muscara could face up to 10 years in prison, and a fine of $250,000 for sending a letter containing white powder she claimed was anthrax to Senator Collins. The powder turned out to be starch but the frightening event caused Collins, her husband, and her dogs to be quarantined until the crime lab could analyze the white powder.
Bangor Daily News reported in mid-October that a letter that claimed to be contaminated with poison was sent on Monday to the home of U.S. Sen. Susan Collins in Bangor, leading police to shut down an adjacent road for several hours, according to her spokeswoman:
“Senator Collins’ husband, Tom Daffron, today received a threatening letter that the writer claimed was contaminated with ricin, a highly hazardous substance which was used in a previous attack against the United States Senate. Mr. Daffron, their dog, and parts of their home were quarantined while the crime lab undertook an analysis of the premises. The affected areas have now been cleared, and Senator Collins and Mr. Daffron will be able to remain at home tonight.”
Collins was harassed and threatened by leftists who even protested at her home:
Muscara is now playing games by saying she didn’t even think the letter would be mailed.
There is a second letter that was sent, but it has not been identified as coming from Muscara.
