LOS ANGELES (CBS SF) — A second package addressed to California Rep. Maxine Waters, similar to those sent earlier to homes of former President Obama and President Clinton, Waters and other prominent Democrats, has been found at a Los Angeles mail facility Wednesday, according to authorities.

Members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms field division and Los Angeles police were responding to the incident in South Los Angeles Wednesday afternoon.

The item was found by postal inspectors. Waters also had a suspicious package addressed to her Washington office that was intercepted at a Maryland mail facility earlier Wednesday.

The Los Angeles Times reported authorities were evacuating the facility in South Los Angeles and officials plan to deploy a robot to examine the package.

President Donald Trump called for unity Wednesday after the suspicious package discoveries. But in the past, he has hurled some of his harshest insults at the same people who were sent letter bombs.

The president still attacks his 2016 Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, nearly two years after defeating her in the election. Crowds at his rallies continue to erupt in angry chants of “Lock her up!” Clinton has not remained silent either.

In July, police and a hazardous materials team responded Waters’ South Los Angeles to investigate a suspicious package labeled “anthrax.” The item was determined not be a danger.

Waters is among the most vocal of President Trump’s critics and has called for his impeachment. She made national headlines in June when she said “if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them” after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant.

  1. The stamps are not cancelled so it was carried in by a DNC operative.

    This will backfire against the left in a spectacular way!
