ricin

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told reporters Tuesday that there has been another ricin incident at Bolling Air Force base in Southeast Washington, D.C.

“We’ve had another incident today I’m told at Bolling Air Force base. Same substance,” said Reid.

Reid divulged the information after law enforcement authorities released Paul Kevin Curtis, who had been arrested with mailing ricin-laced letters to President Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.).

“I was told that they’re going to release this man. He of course claims he was framed so we’ll see,” said Reid.

Reid said he did not have any other information related to Curtis’s release.
