LITTLE ROCK (AP) — U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder of Arkansas says a letter saying he's a target for assassination was intercepted by U.S. Capitol Police.
Snyder says he was told about the letter Tuesday by Capitol Police. It was postmarked in a Western state — not Arkansas — and misspelled his name as "Vic Synder."
Snyder read from a copy of the original saying: "It is apparent that it will take a few assassinations to stop Obamacare. Militia central has selected you for assassination. If we cannot stalk and find you in Washington, D.C., we will get you in Little Rock."
At least 10 members of Congress have reported similar threats.
Snyder is a Democrat and was the only member of the state's House delegation to vote for the health care legislation that passed Sunday.
