As reported last week, one letter was sent to Livingston County Democratic Party headquarters Thursday expressing a “wish” that Obama “gets a bullet.”
A second letter has surfaced, having also been sent Thursday, to a Howell business stating “Think hard about who you are trying to elect you liberal piece of s--- n----- lover.”
Both included the same six-page document printed out from Snopes.com about the college thesis of Obama’s wife, Michelle. Both had the messages next to a photo of the couple.
It’s been confirmed that the second letter was postmarked out of Lansing and came from a “G.W. Bush 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.”

Racist slurs were spray-painted across a large Barack Obama presidential campaign billboard alongside a heavily trafficked stretch of US-23 in Pittsfield Township sometime overnight Tuesday.
And the U.S. Secret Service is investigating what now appears to be two threatening letters against Obama that were received in Livingston County, according to news reports.
Michigan State Police were on the scene of the billboard Wednesday morning, and have called in for tracking dogs, police said.
Black spray paint was used to draw three swastikas, symbols of Klan hoods and to write "KKK," "Rebel" and two racial slurs.
The billboard, roughly 10 feet tall by 50 feet wide, is located where Textile Road deadends near US-23, east of Carpenter Road.
