A law enforcement source says someone may have tried to frame the Elvis impersonator who was accused of sending ricin-tainted letters to lawmakers.
The Feds released Paul Kevin Curtis yesterday.
U.S. Attorney Felicia Adams, citing “new information,” says charges were dropped against Curtis.
He was accused of sending letters containing a toxin called ricin to the president and a U.S. senator.
Curtis tells CNN’s Piers Morgan that he’d never even heard of ricin, and at first thought investigators were saying “rice,” to which he says he replied, “I’m not even a rice lover.”
No one was hurt by those letters, but they did set off big security scares in Washington, D.C.
