Domestic Terror?

Governors Threatened by Extremist Group

Fresh on the heels of the Hutaree militia arrests, more scary news for elected officials: Several state governors have received letters threatening forcible removal from office if they don’t step down, according to the FBI. The group behind the threats calls itself Guardians of the Free Republics, and its goal is reportedly to “restore America.” Though state police officials have been warned that the group’s mission may lead to “violence or illegal conduct,” FBI and Homeland Security officials have said that the group poses no “immediate or credible threats of violence,” but that they’re working with local authorities and continuing to investigate the situation.
