Texas Woman Accused of Sending Explosives to Obama, Gov. Abbott

Post by Didge on Thu Nov 23, 2017 4:49 pm

A Texas woman has been accused of mailing explosives to Gov. Greg Abbott and former President Barack Obama. Abbott reportedly opened the package but it failed to explode because he didn’t open it “as designed.” Court documents say 46-year-old Julia Poff faces charges of transporting explosives with intent to kill or injure for packages allegedly sent to Abbott and Obama in October 2016. Poff also allegedly sent a package to Carolyn Colvin, the commissioner of the Social Security Administration. A six-count indictment alleges the letter bombs “could've caused severe burns and death.” Poff was reportedly angry about not receiving support from her ex-husband. Federal investigators were only recently able to trace the explosive packages back to Poff thanks to traces of cat hair found on the box sent to Obama, according to local Houston station KHOU-11.

I like stories like this on forums. 95% of the posters don't know how to handle a story where both sides are attacked. A knee jerk reaction just won't work. Cool

Decides to blow up a few random high-profile politicians instead..
Probaby made some kind of "logical" sense to her  ?     cat
