Beshear among governors who received threatening letter

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear is among several
governors who have received threatening letters from an
anti-government group demanding that they resign or be removed.
Kentucky State Police Lt. David Jude acknowledged Friday that
Beshear had received one of the letters. Jude said security has
been beefed up around the governor as a result.
As of Wednesday, more than 30 governors had received similar
letters from the anti-government group Guardians of the free
Republics, according to an internal intelligence note by the FBI
and the Department of Homeland Security, which was obtained by the
AP.
Beshear spokeswoman Jill Midkiff declined to comment about the
letter, saying it is the policy of the administration not to
discuss issues regarding the governor's security.
