FBI warns extremist letters may encourage violence
The FBI is warning police across the country that an anti-government group's call to remove governors from office could provoke violence by others.
A group that calls itself the Guardians of the free Republics wants to "restore America" by peacefully dismantling parts of the government, according to its Web site.
As of Wednesday, more than 30 governors had received letters saying if they don't leave office within three days they will be removed, according to an internal intelligence note by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The note was obtained by The Associated Press.
