Officials are honing in on the health care reform opponent who caused the anthrax scare at Rep. Anthony Weiner's Kew Gardens office two weeks ago. According to the Post, the letter came from the 11235 zip code, which includes Sheepshead Bay and Manhattan Beach (and rules out Jon Stewart). The note was written in block letters and included threats related to Weiner's health care vote, and the white powder turned out to be antacid.

Nine of Weiner's staff members had to be decontaminated after being exposed to the white powder, which was found to be nonhazardous two days later. Weiner was in D.C. at the time, but said the ordeal was "very traumatic" for his staff. “The people who work for me are not political operachiks [sic], they’re basically government workers who don’t get paid a great deal and don’t spend their time debating health care. In my opinion, sending terrorizing letters to my community offices is not anything resembling free speech.” This letter was not the first violent letter to arrive at one of Weiner's offices. A few days before the anthrax scare, two letters were sent to Weiner's office in DC, one signed with a swastika and the other referring to Weiner as "schlomo." There is no evidence that they were sent by the same person.
