FBI warns letters to Perdue, other governors could provoke violence

Update 2:03: For the record, Perdue's office confirms that she's not resigning, the N&O's Ben Niolet reports.

The office of N.C. Gov. Bev Perdue received a letter this week from an anti-government group that's written to governors around the country demanding they leave their posts, The Associated Press reports.

Perdue communications director Chrissy Pearson said today that a letter from the Guardians of the free Republics came to Perdue's constituent services office Tuesday or Wednesday.

The letter was forwarded to Perdue's security detail. Pearson couldn't give details about how Perdue's security officers responded except to say the threats are taken very seriously.

The FBI expects governors in all 50 states to receive the letters and has told police nationwide the group's call to remove governors from office could provoke violence.

Perdue was in Charlotte today for President Barack Obama's visit.

"Great job teabaggers. Now quit using your gub-mint medicare, medicade, social security, and unemployment insurance."

The Social Security and Medicare was taken against their will from them and their employer. You do know that unemployment is also funded by funds paid by your company. The government doesn't just come up with it on their own.

From the article:

"Investigators do not see threats of violence in the group's message, but fear the broad call for removal of top state officials could lead others to act out violently"

In other words, no threats were actually made, yet the Liberals will act like there were and stir up outrage in the idiots that believe anything they see in print.

I don't believe in violence at ALL! And I think tactics like these are horrible!

The best way to get rid of candidate is to campaign for who you want and then VOTe for them!

Intimidation and threats is NEVER right! This is just WRONG on so MANY levels!
