Authorities are investigating after a “glitter” bomb exploded in the Lincoln office of Congressman Jeff Fortenberry.
A spokeswoman for the Congressman says no one was hurt Wednesday. A few members of the Congressman’s staff got showered by sparkles that shot out of the envelope when they opened it.
The envelope contained a note stating, “Congrats, you’ve earned this for trying to deny women their right to choice. Mind your own uterus.”
Various authorities have been notified. A spokesman for Lincoln police says it doesn’t appear the letter was threatening, though it will be analyzed for fingerprints. The FBI and the United States postal inspector have become involved in the investigation.
A recent vote might have prompted the incident. Fortenberry supported efforts in the House of Representatives to deny federal funding for abortions.
