BREAKING: Edwards campaign evacuates due to Mysterious White Powder

This just in, there isn't much else I can add at this point:

JOHN EDWARDS FOR PRESIDENT CAMPAIGN STATEMENT ON EVACUATION OF HEADQUARTERS

Chapel Hill, North Carolina - John Edwards for President Deputy Campaign Manager Jonathan Prince released the following statement today about the evacuation of the campaign’s headquarters.

"We received a letter this afternoon at our Chapel Hill headquarters which was opened by a member of our staff and contained a white powder. The health and safety of our staff and volunteers is obviously our paramount concern, so we contacted the authorities. The authorities have asked us to evacuate while they run tests on the substance, and we have done so.

"Our staff continues to be connected and working from home and the campaign continues to operate at full speed. We will pass along more information when we receive it."

I too will pass more along when I hear about it.

I'd say this confirms our assumption

someone is very scared of Edwards for President!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Thanks Robert

I decided to spend time with the kids and the man tonight and haven't seen any type of announcement on television. Glad I checked in.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

I'm sure they will be making fun of it tomorrow.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

fuck em

I have no respect for anyone who laughs at this no matter what. They will probably just say it was a hoax and that he sent the letter to himself. Thankfully we live in North Carolina and not Washington DC, so this crime or terrorist activity will be fully investigated and (probably) solved.

Edwards Office Re-Opens

This just in on my wire:

John Edwards for President Headquarters Re-opens

Chapel Hill, North Carolina - John Edwards for President Deputy Campaign Manager Jonathan Prince released the following statement today about the reopening of the campaign headquarters in Chapel Hill. Yesterday, the headquarters office was evacuated after receiving a letter with white powder.

“The test results of the white powdery substance received yesterday have come back negative, and the authorities have informed us that it is safe to return to the office.

"We want to thank the Chapel Hill police office and other authorities involved for their assistance. We look forward to returning to the office and focusing on our campaign to change America.”

As I said at Daily Kos:

It was probably a letter from Tom Tancredo's campaign. Someone was told to put "white power" in the envelope and got the message wrong.

Don't worry, I'm sure it's only Gold Bond Medicated Powder, the kind they advertise on the Rush Limbaugh show.

Is Oxycontin prescribed in powder form or in such a manner as it could be pulverized?

War is over if you want it.

Is it my imagination

or are about 90% of the commenters on WRAL's web site complete idiots?
