Person claimed ricin was in letter sent to Senator Collins home

Person claimed ricin was in letter sent to Senator Collins homeA suspicious letter sent to the Maine home of Republican U.S. Senator Susan Collins had a note saying it contained the deadly poison ricin, the senator’s office said on Tuesday, adding any affected areas had been cleared. No one was harmed in the incident that took place on Monday and Collins’ office did not comment on whether the letter sent to Tom Daffron, the senator’s husband, actually contained ricin. “Mr. Daffron, their dog, and parts of their home were quarantined while the crime lab undertook an analysis of the premises,” Annie Clark, a spokeswoman for Collins said in a statement, adding that “the incident is the latest in a series of threats against Senator Collins, her loved ones, and her staff.” Collins was thrust into the national spotlight this month when she became a key vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, delivering a major victory to President Donald Trump, who has now locked in a conservative majority on the court.
