Senators Write DOJ Regarding Fentanyl-Laced Letters

Six election offices received letters laced with various drugs in a single month.

Senators Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Deb Fischer of Nebraska recently wrote a letter to the Department of Justice asking for an investigation into drug-laced letters sent to six election offices in the past month to be prioritized. The election offices that received the letters are located in different states. Four of the letters were found to contain fentanyl along with various other substances.

“With the upcoming primary elections beginning early next year in most of these states, we ask that the Department of Justice prioritize review of these concerning incidents and ensure that those affected have the resources and support that they need,” Senators Klobuchar and Fischer wrote in their letter to Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the safety of election workers as offices are targeted by disruptors.
  • For Deputy Secretary Monaco as she considers the request for the Department of Justice to prioritize finding the origins of the drug-laced letters.
  • For Senators Klobuchar and Fischer as they urged the Justice Department to investigate ahead of the coming election season.
