Kansas Attorney General: Mysterious Powder in Letters Contained Rat Poison


TOPEKA, Kan. (KNS) – That white powdery substance sent to 100 Republican officials earlier this month is a mixture of rat poison and another powder. That’s according to Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach, who was targeted by one of the letters himself.

The FBI has taken over the investigation because similar letters have also appeared in Montana and Tennessee.

Speaking with News Nation, Kobach said, “It’s interesting looking at Kansas, Montana and Tennessee being the three states targeted. A common thread between those states is that all three either passed legislation dealing with the trans issue or are in litigation dealing with that issue, but that’s just a theory.”

Investigators have not made any arrests or released a motive but officials say the letters were a targeted attack against Republican lawmakers and GOP state officials.
