Spokeswoman: Gov. got letter demanding he step down

Posted: Monday, April 05, 2010

JUNEAU - Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell is among the governors who have received letters demanding they leave office or be removed.

Parnell spokeswoman Sharon Leighow confirmed Friday that Parnell had received a letter in his Anchorage office.

She didn't immediately know when the letter was received, but it was delivered by mail. She said it had been turned over to the FBI.

The group Guardians of the free Republics sent letters to at least 30 governors demanding they leave office or be removed. Investigators didn't see threats of violence in the group's message but the FBI has warned that the group's call could provoke violence by others.
