New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg Not Intimidated By Ricin-Laced Letters

Source: CBS This Morning / CBS News

Federal investigators are trying to figure out who sent two threatening letters laced with the deadly poison ricin to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his gun-control group in Washington.

CBS News correspondent Elaine Quijano reports that authorities say responding officers who came into contact with the letter in New York suffered some minor symptoms. No one was seriously hurt, but now a joint terrorism task force, including the FBI and the NYPD, is investigating.

Bloomberg spoke with reporters shortly after the threats against him became public Wednesday evening.

“No, I’m not angry,” said Bloomberg. “There are people who, I would argue, do things that may be irrational, do things that are wrong, but it’s a very complex world out there, and we just have to deal with that.”
