‘Gross and stupid’: USPS investigating feces mailed to entire Ohio GOP State Senate caucus
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service has launched an investigation after all 25 Republicans in the Ohio state Senate were mailed "envelopes full of feces," The Columbus Dispatchreported Thursday.
"The packages arrived after being sent almost a week earlier from a Cleveland post office," the newspaper reported. "The packages were intercepted by Statehouse, Cleveland and Akron post offices before reaching the senators, according to a statement from Ohio House spokesman John Fortney."
Republicans control the state Senate, which is led by President Pro Tempore Jay Hottinger, Majority Floor Leader Kirk Schuring, and Majority Whip Rob McColley.
Fortney seemed to suggest trial by combat.
"They should’ve just sent a selfie, because it’s the same thing," Fortney said. "I’d be more than happy to explain it to them in a parking lot or cornfield of their choice.”
The newspaper interviewed Sen. Jay Hottinger (R), who said it was, "gross and stupid, immaturity at its highest level."
But Hottinger seemed to take the whole incident in stride.
"Just another crappy day," he said.
