Brewer among dozens of governors threatened in letter

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is among dozens of governors who have received a letter that the FBI says could incite violence.

Brewer spokesman Paul Senseman confirmed the letter on Friday.

The FBI is warning police that an anti-government group’s call to remove governors from office could provoke violence.

Investigators do not see threats of violence in the group’s message, but fear the broad call for removing top state officials could lead others to act out violently.

As of Wednesday, more than 30 governors had received letters saying if they don’t leave office within three days they will be removed, according to an internal intelligence note by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.
