They were discovered Tuesday outside the offices of five Democratic State Senators and one Republican House Member. Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal of St. Louis County says someone planted two stickers outside her office:
“The first one was put on about 1 to 1:15, so we took that one down, we threw it away, and we called the Capitol Police…then about an hour-and-a-half later there was another rifle crosshair.”
The rifle target stickers appeared a few hours before the Missouri Senate began debating a bill related to the national health care law signed by President Obama. It’s unknown so far if there’s any connection. It’s also not known yet if the incident is a real threat or merely a prank.
