A suspicious package containing white powder and a profanity-laden death threat was delivered to the Bowling Green, Kentucky home of Sen. Rand Paul.
The FBI and Capitol Hill police are investigating the incident and the white substance is being tested by authorities.
Sen. Paul will be a guest on the Todd Starnes Radio Show on Wednesday.
Fox News Channel obtained an exclusive copy of the image that was sent to the Republican lawmaker.
On the outside of the envelope was a picture of a bruised and bandaged Paul with a gun to his head and a threat printed beneath it: “I’ll finish what your neighbor started you motherf——“
I take these threats immensely seriously. As a repeated target of violence, it is reprehensible that Twitter allows C-list celebrities to encourage violence against me and my family. https://t.co/e1rQ6uwPdf— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) May 24, 2021
In 2017 Sen. Paul was assaulted and brutally beaten by his neighbor, Rene Boucher. He later pled guilty to assaulting a member of Congress.
In 2018, Paul and his family were targeted by someone threatening to attack them with an ax.
Television station WLKY reported that a man in western Kentucky threatened to kill Paul and “chop up” his family with an ax.
“I take these threats immensely seriously,” Paul wrote in a statement Monday. “I have been targeted multiple times now, it is reprehensible that Twitter allows C-list celebrities to advocated for violence against me and my family. This must stop. Just this weekend Richard Marx called for violence against me and now we receive this despicable powder filled letter.”
Marx, a singer, tweeted, “I’ll say it again: If I ever meet Rand Paul’s neighbor I’m going to hug him and buy him as many drinks as he can consume.”
