He’s a Republican. Obviously left-wing extremists must be to blame.

An envelope sent to an office of Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) tested positive for the deadly poison ricin, according to a report in Politico.

CNN reported that the envelope was intercepted at the U.S. Capitol’s off-site mail facility in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday. It was tested three times for ricin and tested positive all three times.

A Wicker spokesman said that the investigation was “ongoing” and directed inquiries to Capitol police.
