Shannon Ricin-hardson? Oh yes…I went there.

Texas actress Shannon Guess Richardson has been indicted and charged in the mailing of ricin-laced letters to President Barack Obama and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a U.S. attorney’s office in Texas said today. The three-count indictment accuses Richardson of mailing three threatening letters around May 20 to Obama, Bloomberg, and Mark Glaze — director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Richardson, 35, initially told the FBI that her estranged husband, Nathaniel, sent the ricin-laced letters, but a polygraph exam found her to be “deceptive” on the matter, court papers said. Richardson has had minor roles in TV series, including “The Walking Dead” and “The Vampire Diaries.”
