September 11, 2010

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- Police have notified the FBI and Secret Service about a death threat against the White House press secretary that was found on a restroom door at the Interstate 81 welcome center in Antrim Township, Pa., Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Lindsey Trace said Saturday.

The vandalism was reported Thursday afternoon at the I-81 northbound welcome center just north of the Maryland/Pennsylvania state line, Trace said.

Written on a door to the women's restroom were the words "Press Secretary Robert Gibbs will be assassinated on 09/11/10. Mark My Words," according to a state police press release.

The message was signed Michelle, but the last name could not be made out, troopers said.

Trace said police talked to an FBI agent from Harrisburg, Pa., about the vandalism and the agent said it would be referred to the Secret Service as a precaution.
