The Washington, D.C. headquarters of Americans for Tax Reform, an influential, and admirably inflexible advocacy group that pushes for lower taxes, was evacuated today following a phoned-in bomb threat, The Daily Caller reports.
A spokesman for the Washington D.C. police department, Anthony Clay, told The Daily Caller that officers from the explosive ordinance [sic] division were called to the organization's D.C. offices. The employees have since been allowed to return to work, another officer told TheDC from the scene.
No explosives were found, the officer said. Police had shut down 12th Street in Washington near ATR's offices.
ATR and its "Taxpayer Protection Pledge" have been in the news recently as Congress considers raising the nation's debt ceiling.
My guess is the bomb threat was phoned in by an irate left-winger. Terrorizing adversaries has long been part of the radical playbook. Witness the ongoing joint SEIU-ACORN terror campaign now directed at JPMorgan Chase.

America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists who use the brutal, in-your-face, pressure tactics of Saul Alinsky want to destroy America as we know it and will use any means to do it.
