The letter sent to the party office reportedly expresses a wish that Obama "gets a bullet." The second to the unidentified Howell business owner includes racial slurs - preceded by a warning that the owner should "think hard about who you are trying to elect."
Michigan State Police said they are investigating racial slurs spray-painted on an Obama campaign billboard along U.S. 23 near Ann Arbor. Officers believe the graffiti, which includes swastikas and Ku Klux Klan symbols, were painted late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
Obama state campaign spokesman Brent Colburn said he believed it was the first large-scale act of vandalism on Obama campaign material to include such slurs in Michigan.
