Beto O’Rourke Threatened By Pipe Bomb Suspect
Last week the country held its breath while several prominent Democrats and donors got pipe bombs in the mail. Former president Barack Obama, and Bill and Hillary Clinton were among the targets, and now there is word from the Dallas Morning News that El Paso Congressman Beto O'Rourke was also threatened by the suspect via Facebook.
After getting those threatening Facebook messages, the FBI went through his mail on October 25, at his El Paso campaign office. O'Rourke campaign officials say the suspect sent several threatening messages April. The campaign reported them to the authorities, including the FBI, in July.
The suspect allegedly had a list of 100 people whom he considered future targets. It is not known if O'Rourke is on that list. The FBI is in the process of notifying people on that list that they were potential targets.
