Wicker Had Hired Suspect a Decade Ago

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) told Roll Call that, about a decade ago, he met the man who was arrested on charges of sending him a ricin-laced letter.

Said Wicker: "I have indeed met the gentleman before. He's an entertainer. He's an Elvis impersonator. He entertained at a party my wife and I helped give for a young couple that were getting married."

He added, "My impression is that since that time he's had mental issues and perhaps is not as stable as he was back then."

The Week has a good backgrounder on the case and what we know.
