A bloody pig’s foot and an anti-Semitic note were sent to U.S. Rep. Peter King, the chairman of the House of Representatives’ Homeland Security Committee.
Capitol Hill police have opened an investigation into the package to King (R-N.Y.), Politico reported.
The package’s contents were discovered when it was scanned for explosives and never made it to King’s office, according to reports. A letter with the package referred to a Homeland Security meeting last month in which King voiced concern about the “radicalization” of the American Muslim community.
The letter, which reportedly was full of anti-Semitic sentiment, also reportedly referred to King as Jew. King, who has served in Congress since 1993, is not Jewish.
