Kan. Governor Receives Suspicious Letter

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' office receives a suspicious letter containing powder.

State capitols in Georgia and South Carolina received similar letters Thursday. Envelopes with suspicious powder also have been received by governors' offices in 12 other states this week.

Sebelius spokeswoman Nicole Corcoran said, "It was just like what was described in other states.''

The letter arrived at the governor's office at the Statehouse and a staffer opened it at noon, Corcoran said. Sebelius was in her office at the time.

Capitol police have closed off the reception area to Sebelius' office, but they haven't sealed her private office, Corcoran said.

Corcoran said, "No danger has been identified with the substance.''
