"Kiss my black, Muslim-American ass." NEW YORK - A Georgia woman has claimed responsibility for sending a severed pig's foot to Rep.

Jacquelyn Barnette, who described herself as Muslim, told the New York Post Thursday that she sent King the package, which also contained an anti-Semitic note. The US Postal Service intercepted the package before it ever reached King's office. "I thought the letters explain themselves," Barnette said. Asked about her comments, King told FOX News she "seems to be a disturbed person." "I'll let the police decide how to deal with her. I don't want to do anything to encourage her or others like her," he said.
