Senator KBH Becomes Victim of Cruel E-Mail Hoax
July 7, 2010

First let me assure you that the senior ranking United States Senator from Texas is alive and well.

But, that didn’t stop some sicko  from circulating a very authentic looking email to the news media announcing the death of Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, allegedly as a result of breast cancer.

KPRC Local 2 contacted Senator KHB’s spokesperson, Courtney Sanders, who confirmed the Senator is alive and the office is trying to track down the source of the cruel and *fake*  email, which you can read below:

Politics Daily is also reporting that Senators Leahy, Feinstein and others were targeted.http://www.politicsdaily.com/2010/07/07/e-mail-hoax-reports-deaths-of-sens-leahy-feinstein-lautenberg/
