Mysterious Substance Sent To Missouri Lawmaker

Updated:

Officials say a mysterious green substance sent to a Missouri lawmaker who was censured last year appears to pose no danger, and it's not yet clear whether the package was intended as a threat.
Authorities are investigating after an assistant of Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal spotted the granular substance Thursday morning leaking from an envelope that was sent to the Capitol and addressed to the St. Louis-area Democrat. 
      Chappelle-Nadal was censured last year by the Legislature for a Facebook post hoping for President Donald Trump's assassination. The senator said she has received many death threats since the August Facebook post, which was later deleted. Chappelle-Nadal has also apologized.
    Senate Majority Leader Mike Kehoe, a Republican from Jefferson City, said on the Senate floor that Chappelle-Nadal's office and the Senate administrator's office would remain closed until lab results came back. The mailroom was also briefly closed.
    Eight staffers were examined by medical personnel but showed no problematic symptoms and were released from quarantine
