Bomb Suspect Arrested in Florida

The FBI has made an arrest in the bombing case. That’s pretty fast work.

This will blanket cable news today, I’m sure, with endless speculation about who the suspect is. At the moment, though, we don’t know a lot: It’s a white man in his 50s who’s made terror threats before. The arrest was made in south Florida. And the guy’s van is covered in apparently pro-Trump stickers:

Beware of viral crap on the internet about this. Much of it will be nonsense. The FBI says it will hold a press conference at 2:30 pm Eastern time.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
