Threatening letter sent to Va. Gov
The FBI is investigating a threatening letter sent to Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R) this week.
The letter was received at the governor’s office in Richmond Wednesday. It was turned over to the Virginia State Police, which sent it to the Richmond FBI office.
The governor’s office released a statement Friday morning that said: "The Governor and his family are secure."
FBI Agent M.A. Myers declined to say what the letter said.
McDonnell was one of many governors across the nation who received a letter, Myers said. He added that the FBI is aware of who sent the letters. No arrests have been made.
News of the letter comes amid a spate of threats against members of Congress. A Philadelphia man was charged Monday with threatening to kill Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and his family.
