FBI warns letters to governors could stir violence

WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI is warning police across the country that an anti-government groups call to remove governors from office could provoke violence.

The group called the Guardians of the Free Republics wants to restore America by peacefully dismantling parts of the government, according to its Web site.

Investigators do not see threats of violence in the groups message, but fear the broad call for removing top state officials could lead others to act out violently.

As of Wednesday, more than 30 governors had received letters saying if they dont leave office within three days they will be removed, according to an internal intelligence note by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The note was obtained by The Associated Press.

The FBI expects all 50 governors will eventually receive such letters.

Governors whose offices reported receiving the letters included Jennifer Granholm of Michigan, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Chet Culver of Iowa, Dave Heineman of Nebraska, Jim Gibbons of Nevada, and Gary Herbert of Utah, where officials stepped up security in response to the letter.
