TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) – A local member of congress suggests no one jump to conclusions in the wake of Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon, paired with new discoveries of tainted mail sent to President Obama and elected officials in Washington.

South Jersey democrat Rob Andrews insists no one should make any connection between those incidents; at least, not yet.

“The timing may be coincidental. There may be some broader, causal connection. Absolutely no one knows about that and any speculation, I think, would be unadvisable and irresponsible,” says Andrews.

Mind you, federal investigators are looking for any potential link. Andrews says the fact congressional mail is screened off site for potential threats allows people like him to relax a bit and, in fact, constituents are calling him worrying about security back home.
