    DENVER (Reuters) - The Denver campaign headquarters of presidential candidate John McCain was evacuated on Thursday after the office received an envelope containing a threatening letter and an unidentified white powder, a campaign spokesman said.

    The letter arrived in the mail in the afternoon, and the campaign immediately notified local and federal law enforcement authorities, said Jeff Sadosky, a spokesman for the campaign in suburban Washington, D.C.

    A similar letter was received at McCain's office in Manchester, NH.

    40. the weird thing is that it's most likely from a right winger...

    McWealthy is hardly popular with the hardcore right wingers... and that kind of crap seems like a creepy freeper move. And it's totally screwed up to put anyone at risk like that. Geez. it's only politics.

    Leave it to the DUmmies to assume that a disenchanted "right-winger" sent it!

    Neat, it looks like I'm the first to ask it:
    What do you think is the letter sender's DU name?
