Mystery Powder Sent to MAGA Republican’s Campaign Office

Our political environment is turning ever more turgid these days, as the turbo-charged hyperbole of the mainstream media continues to shove us ever further into our political corners for the sake of provoking conflict and ratings.

The latest dangerous escalation in this march toward trouble comes to us from Arizona, where a MAGA candidate for governor has now been targeted in an abhorrent mail-in attack.

Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake reacted Sunday to her campaign headquarters receiving “suspicious” items in the mail, vowing to track down the person responsible.

Lake’s staffers were reportedly exposed to a white powdery substance found in packages sent to her office.

While speaking with reporters after a campaign event in Queen Creek, Arizona, Sunday evening, Lake was asked about the packages and the health of the staffers who were exposed.

“I have been so busy campaigning. This happened. I was not in the office. One of our wonderful staffers, a couple of them, were actually exposed,” Lake said. “And so far they’re doing OK. We’re monitoring them, and we want to make sure that everything’s OK.”

Lake chalked the attack up to our heightened political agitation.

The former TV news anchor explained that this was not the first instance in which her campaign has been targeted.

“But listen, we’re in dangerous times,” she said. “This is not the first time we’ve been threatened. I’ve been threatened many times. Our tires have been slashed. We’ve had screws drilled into our tires so that our tires would blow out while we’re on the road. We are living in dangerous times, and that’s why we need to elect somebody who’s strong and a fighter and not a coward. We’ll get to the bottom of this. I really don’t want to get too far ahead of it.”

Arizona has been in the news a great deal since the election of 2020, as the Maricopa County elections came under enhanced scrutiny by the MAGA faithful.
