Law enforcement said that four county election offices in Washington state were evacuated on Wednesday after white powdery substances were found in envelopes at the state's election centers in King, Pierce, Skagit, and Spokane counties. The substances tested positive for fentanyl in King and Spokane, while in at least one other case the substance was baking soda, according to Komo 4 News.
Washington Secretary of State Steve Hobbs said the incidents are "acts of terrorism to threaten our elections."
Authorities say they are currently in the process of trying to intercept a letter sent from Washington state to an election center in Georgia, saying they are hoping to prevent it from landing in the hands of a person.
During a press brief on Thursday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said that a letter sent to a Fulton County election office on election night tested positive for fentanyl. Narcan has been distributed to election workers in Georgia as a precaution.
"We became aware of the situation that there was actually still an envelope that was still in the mail that was traveling toward Fulton County," Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
Georgia's 159 counties received notices alerting election officials to the situation and advising them to use caution when handling mail.
Raffensperger, who lost his son to a fentanyl overdose five years ago, warned about the deadly effect that can occur if a person were to come into contact with the drug.
"Election officials should be free from fear and intimidation, which is why I've called on the General Assembly to increase penalties for election interference," Raffensperger said. "We will work tirelessly to ensure that Georgia elections remain free, fair, and secure."
The Post Millennial obtained an exclusive copy of the letter sent to the Pierce County election office in Tacoma, Washington that featured an anarchist message and symbols of Antifa, the trans pride progress flag, and the occult.
"End elections now. Stop giving power to the right that they don't have. We are in charge now and there is no more need for them. Also be aware your ballot drops are very susceptible to noxious chemicals like AM/BL. They are unsafe to the public. Just saying," read a letter that appears to have been sent from Portland, Oregon.
Authorities have not confirmed if the letters sent to the other election centers were similar.
A spokesperson for the US Department of Justice told Komo News that the FBI and US Postal Inspection Service are investigating.
The FBI said in a statement to The Post Millennial: "Per long-standing FBI policy, we will not be confirming or commenting on investigations until such time it reaches the public realm."
"For your reference, the FBI can never open an investigation based solely on protected First Amendment activity. We cannot and do not investigate ideology. We focus on individuals who commit or intend to commit violence and criminal activity that constitutes a federal crime. The FBI will investigate when someone crosses the line from expressing their views to breaking federal laws and engaging in violence."
Pressed into pills or mixed with other narcotics, fentanyl is an opioid that can be 50 times more potent than the same quantity of heroin, and it's causing the deadliest overdose catastrophe the United States has ever seen, mostly in Democrat-run cities along the West Coast such as Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco.
