WHO SENT A ‘DEROGATORY’ LETTER WITH MYSTERIOUS WHITE POWDER TO U.S. REP. ALLEN WEST?

A suspicious white powder mailed to U.S. Rep. Allen West turned out to be a hoax, ending a three-hour scare on Friday that drew a swarm of local and federal investigators to his campaign office in Boca Raton.

Hazardous materials handlers in blue suits tested the powder around 4:30 p.m. in the parking lot outside his office at 2108 N. Federal Highway. No biohazardous substances were detected, according to Boca Raton Fire-Rescue spokesman Frank Correggio.

“It was not anthrax,” he said. The tests did not reveal what it was.

A letter mailed with the white powder had mentioned the word “anthrax” and included derogatory comments toward West, according to a statement from Chief of Staff Jonathan Blythe.
