A suspected bomb that arrived at the office of Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Wednesday scrambled law enforcement, including the FBI, to the Sunrise location just hours after authorities investigated three pipe bombs sent to President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the offices of CNN in New York.
But her package differed in this regard: It only got there because the address it was originally sent to — the office of former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder — was incorrect, and the package bore the congresswoman’s return address.
It was one of seven suspicious packages sent across the country to mostly Democratic standard bearers and a couple of news outlets that raised tensions throughout the nation.
ALERT!!! We are working an investigation of a suspicious package near Sawgrass Corporate Parkway. Please stay out of the area of NW 8th St and NW 136th Ave. We will provide further updates when available.
