Woman Arrested For Trying To Kill Barack Obama And Texas Governor Greg Abbott

By Erica Diaz

Julia Poff, a 46-year-old woman from Texas, is faced with several charges stemming from a period in October 2016 where Ms. Abbott allegedly sent explosive devices to three government figures. Ms. Poff is said to have mailed the devices to each person for different reasons. 

Court documents say that Ms. Poff mailed an explosive to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott because she was angry that she was not receiving support (it is unclear whether this means child support, spousal support, etc.) from her ex-husband and she blamed Gov. Abbott. The Governor did, in fact, open the package. However, because he opened it in a different way than Ms. Poff had anticipated and differently than the package had been designed, the device did not go off. 

Documents say it could have caused severe burns and quite possibly death had it been opened the way the package design says to.
