    The FBI and NYPD are investigating threatening letters that claim to contain dangerous pathogens sent to U.S. lawmakers and media companies, law enforcement officials told NBCNewYork.com.

    The person sent letters to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, of "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report," claiming more letters had been sent to 100 senators and various media companies, including The New York Times, Fox News and NPR, law enforcement officials said.

    The letters, which are believed to have been mailed from Oregon, contain threats claiming that 10 percent of the envelopes had dangerous pathogens. Officials said the writer voices anger over corporate greed and the state of the U.S. economy. The letters are signed "MAB."
