The Dane County Bomb Squad spent some time at Senator Russ Feingold’s Middleton home Saturday afternoon. They investigated a package that was apparently sent from our third president.
The return address was from Illinois, so a staffer for Feingold took the item to authorities, in light of the recent national news over suspicious packages being sent to the Chicago area.
Sergeant Don Mueller says the package was opened after x-rays revealed there were no explosives. Inside was a letter to Feingold signed by Thomas Jefferson. Mueller says the signature looked like the version on the Declaration of Independence saying the person probably cut and pasted it off the internet.
A board game was included. As to what game it was, the sergeant didn’t want to reveal that detail.
