Group “non-threatens” 30 governors, including Granholm, to resign

LANSING (AP) — Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm was among more than 30 governors who received letters from an anti-government group demanding they leave office within three days or be removed.

Spokeswoman Liz Boyd tells The Associated Press that a letter was received on Monday in the mailroom of Granholm’s executive office in Lansing. She said federal authorities told the Democratic governor in advance about the letter.

A federal intelligence note warns police that the Guardians of the Free Republics’ call to remove dozens of sitting governors may encourage others to act out violently. The group’s Web sites says it has a plan to "restore America" by peacefully dismantling parts of the government.

Boyd said Granholm did not see the "non-threatening" letter that was immediately turned over to the Michigan State Police.
