Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Ex-court mediator charged with sending poop-laced letters to Ohio GOP pols”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

An ex-court mediator in Ohio was arrested for allegedly sending three dozen feces-laced letters to Republican politicians in his state, including Rep. Jim Jordan.

Richard Steinle, who worked for an Ohio county court, allegedly mailed the poop-contaminated correspondence to all 25 Republican state senators in early July before he was caught later that month, authorities said.

He was charged in federal court with sending “injurious articles as nonmailable,” which breaks a federal law that prohibits mailing hazardous material, according to court records.

The US Postal Inspection Service began probing the repulsive mail to the Ohio Statehouse last month, but investigators believe Steinle’s alleged malfeasance traces back to last August when letters were sent to pols in Washington DC, Kentucky, California and Ohio.

Ohio state senators never received the letters because they were intercepted by mailroom workers in the Ohio Statehouse and post offices in Cleveland and Akron.
