Phone Call Threatens Obama’s Niece

Authorities tightened security at the Princeton-Maryland NCAA tournament women’s basketball game Monday night, after the University of Maryland’s athletic department received a phone call threatening the life of President Obama’s niece. In the eight-minute voicemail, a woman said a man driving on campus with a Glock handgun was directly connected to the appearance of Princeton freshman Leslie Robinson, the daughter of Michelle Obama’s brother. Robinson was not notified of the threat, but undercover security officers were called in while Secret Service officers were also in the area for Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, according a person who was not authorized to speak publicly because of security issues. President Obama had attended Saturday’s game between Princeton and Wisconsin-Green Bay.
