Authorities intercepted a parcel this morning addressed to Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) containing a bloody pig’s foot and a derogatory message, a source has confirmed to CBS News.
The parcel was intercepted at the Congressional mail facility in Landover, Maryland, where mail sent to lawmakers is screened for security risks.
The U.S. Capitol Police and U.S. Postal Service confirmed that there is an open investigation, though would not confirm the details of what was contained in the parcel because the investigation is ongoing. King’s office, which did not see the parcel, referred all questions to the Capitol Police.

According to the CBS article the package contained an anti-Semitic message. It will be interesting to find out who sent this.
Rep. King has gained recognition for holding hearings on the threat of radical Islam in America and has come under fire from Democrats and other left wing extremist groups for doing so LINK.
At a glance the casual observer would think that this pig’s foot that had been sent to the New York Representative may have come from Muslims but I don’t think this is the case.
A Muslim would not touch a bloody pig’s foot, lest they become “defiled”.
I am of the persuasion that this stunt, which could easily be construed as a threat, more than likely came from a leftist Islamic sympathizer of the Democrat Party ilk…Threats and intimidation are the Democrat’s modus operandi, so I wouldn’t be surprised in the least bit.
Hopefully they will catch whoever sent this threatening package and bring them to justice soon.
