BROOKLYN - Rep. Anthony Weiner spoke out about changes to the health care bill Friday morning, only a day after his office received a threatening letter filled with white powder.
The letter with suspicious white powder was discovered Thursday afternoon at Weiner's office in Kew Gardens. Although the powder was later ruled to be non-hazardous, nine people from the office were decontaminated.
The threat was connected to Weiner's vote on the health care legislation, but the congressman says he will not be deterred by threats. Similar incidents have been reported by other officials across the nation.
Weiner says he now plans to visit all five boroughs to outline and explain what the health care reform means to the public.
