(Newser) – It's the modern-day version of the horse head in the bed: Rep. Peter King, he of the infamous Muslim radicalization hearings, was sent a bloody pig's foot, reports Luke Russert for MSNBC. It was accompanied by a note full of anti-Semitic language and a reference to King's controversial hearings. The foot never actually made it to King's office; it was intercepted when it was scanned for explosives.
