(Washington, DC) — Senator Harry Reid says “ugly, vile, vulgar” letters have been sent to his home. The Nevada Democrat did not say who made the threats, but noted they contained passages from the Bible. The U.S. Capitol Police is investigating, and there are reports the majority leader’s security has been beefed up. Reid also addressed rancher Cliven Bundy’s refusal to pay federal land fees for grazing cattle outside Las Vegas. He has spoken with the attorney general, the FBI director and the head of the BLM, among others.
