Freeper is anthrax hoaxer

Well, well. Looks like a little knuckledragger in the swamp has been the one sending letters with white powder — and threats — to the likes of Jon Stewart, Keith Olbermann, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. (Raw Story):

Chad Castagana, a 39 year old Californian named as the FBI’s prime suspect in the case, is due in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles today, where procecutors are expected to file criminal complaint against him for sending threatening letters through the U.S. mail. Castagana has an extensive online history, often writing about science fiction and conservative politics, and many bloggers are convinced that he is also a contributor at the conservative activist Free Republic website under the name Marc Costanzo.

Earlier today, users at the liberal websites Democratic Underground and Daily Kos brought to light the similarities between Castagana’s Internet footprint and Costanzo’s writings at Free Republic, and RAW STORY has found a series of eyebrow-raising connections between the two men.

Note, there’s not much bubbling up from the swamp right now.

From Reuters:

The document, filed on Friday in United States District Court in Los Angeles, said multiple people in various cities, including New York and San Francisco, received letters over the past three months that contained an unknown white powder and various written threats.

In some cases, the threatening letters included expressions such as “Death to Demagogues” and references to Alan Berg, a Jewish talk radio host murdered by white supremacists in Denver in 1984, the document said.
