Cat Lady Mailed Bomb to Texas Governor Abbot – That Didn’t Explode Because He Opened Wrong End of Box (VIDEO)
A Texas woman was arrested after sending explosives to Republican Governor Greg Abbot, Barack Obama and the commissioner of the Social Security administration.
Governor Abbot opened the package from the wrong end or it would have exploded!
A woman in the Brookshire area is accused of sending explosives to three government leaders in 2016.
According to the six-count indictment, 46-year-old Julia Poff mailed explosives to Governor Greg Abbott, President Barack Obama and Commissioner of the Social Security Administration Carolyn Colvin on Oct. 12, 2016.
Other court documents say Gov. Abbott opened the package, but it failed to explode because he didn’t open it right. If opened correctly, documents say “it could’ve caused severe burns and death.”
She was allegedly upset with Gov. Abbott for not receiving support from her ex-husband.
Federal investigators say they were able to connect Poff to the packages using pieces of the shipping labels, and also matched cat hair found in the box mailed to President Obama with her cat.
Poff has been charged with Injurious Articles as Nonmailable and Transportation of Explosives with the Intent to Kill and Injure for the crimes against the government officials.

The packages sent to Obama, the Social Security Administration and Abbott contained pyrotechnic powder, and investigators found a large amount of fireworks at Poff’s home in Brookshire, west of Houston.
