Senator Rand Paul recently received a suspicious package at his Kentucky home, and fire department officials are now investigating its contents.
The delivery contained a “non-toxic” substance, authorities said, adding that “further analysis will be conducted on both the substance and package.”
Apparently, the FBI’s Louisville office is also involved in the investigation.
“I take these threats immensely seriously,” Paul tweeted last night. “As a repeated target of violence, it is reprehensible that Twitter allows C-list celebrities to encourage violence against me and my family.”
Paul is referring to a tweet from the singer Richard Marx, who said he would hug the neighbor that sent Paul to the hospital back in 2017. Marx had also said he would “buy him as many drinks as he can consume.”
