(Newser) – The US Secret Service confirmed Monday it interviewed a person claiming responsibility for the gift-wrapped horse poop that turned up at Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's house Saturday in Los Angeles, the AP reports. Secret Service spokesperson Cody Starken declined to identify the individual who was interviewed. But AL.com reports Robby Strong, a child psychologist based in Los Angeles, says he sent the horse manure on behalf of the American people. "I was exercising my First Amendment rights," he says. "My rule of thumb is now that if corporations are free speech, then so is horses***t." He calls the poop present an "act of political theater" and posted a photo on Facebook showing himself holding a shovel next to a gift box. "We're returning the 'gift' of the Christmas tax bill. It's bullshit," he wrote in another Facebook post. Strong says he was interviewed by the Secret Service on Sunday but not arrested.
