A federal investigation is now underway to find out who is responsible for mailing feces, believed to be human, to every Republican in the Ohio state senate on Thursday.
According to the Columbus Dispatch, the envelopes with feces never made it to the mailboxes of the 25 Republicans as they were intercepted by Statehouse, Cleveland and Akron post offices. The envelopes were sent almost a week earlier from a Cleveland post office.
“It’s gross and stupid; immaturity at its highest level,” Sen. Jay Hottinger, one of the intended targets said, adding, “just another crappy day.”
John Fortney, the spokesperson for the Ohio statehouse said he wasn’t sure if House members had also been sent envelopes. He called the senders “pathetic, little cowards.”
“They should’ve just sent a selfie, because it’s the same thing,” he said. “I’d be more than happy to explain it to them in a parking lot or cornfield of their choice.”
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is investigating the incident as federal crime.
