    AP File - Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, listens during a hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, March 10, 2011. Washington – Capitol Police are investigating a bloody pig’s foot sent to New York Rep. Peter King’s office in Washington.

    The Republican congressman chairs the House Homeland Security panel which held hearings last month on Islamic radicalization.

    The package was discovered by mail screeners before it was delivered to King’s office.
