King and Staff Evacuated

Reports are that a suspicious envelope cleared out Kings office this afternoon. The envelope was delivered with the words "ammonium nitrate" and "homeland security" written on it.
King has gotten behind the effort to regulate the sale of ammonium nitrate which can be used as a main component of a improvised bomb. Timothy McVeigh used ammonium nitrate to blow up the Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City. President Clinton made a push to regulate the sale of ammonium nitrate but got resistance from the republican-led congress.
The opposition to the regulation have no leg to stand on and now some wacko may be making threats.
