HAZMAT investigates letter sent to Maine senators home


(Daily Caller)

A hazmat team was reportedly sent to Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins’s home in the state Monday after a suspicious letter was found.

“Members of our Criminal Investigation Division are currently on scene and the investigation is ongoing. The Bangor Fire Department and a HAZMAT team from Orono, Maine, are assisting the investigation,” Bangor, Maine, police Sergeant Wade Betters said in a statement to Bangor Daily News.

Collins was reportedly not at her home at the time. “Her husband is at the house now, and she’s on her way home,” Annie Clark, a spokeswoman for Collins, said to the news outlet.

Collins made a last-minute decision to vote in favor of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, making it possible for him to get confirmed.

This comes as Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz had a hazmat team show up to a campaign office in Houston on Oct. 2 after a suspicious letter containing white powder was opened. Two people were taken to the hospital.
