I dunno sounds like something an alex jones fan would do, not a politician.

How would this make bernie or hillary look good? Pity votes aren't realistic. Playing victim probably won't give them leverage among the people who see victims as weak.

Voter apathy is their big fear. They want a high voter turn out because the higher the turn out, the better the dems do. Apathy elects 'conservatives'. To get that voter turn out, they need lots of shocking press to get liberals worked up in the days leading up to the election.

Never said anything about a politician tho. It's the kind of thing an anarchist would do if we gave a shit about party politics. It's really effective agitprop.

I'm still skeptical. Hard to know for sure but the method and targets sound like the result of a right-wing conspiracy theory. George soros cnn and msnbc were targets -those are right-wing boogeymen not candidates in an election.

Everyone targeted is a vocal Trump critic. All that tells us is the sender wants the world to know they love Trump.

Also the package sent to cnn was addressed to a guy who doesn't even work there. Not something that would happen in a fake.
