Democratic Senator closes Capitol Hill office on terror fears

What exectly did he see in those classified docs?

US Democratic Senator Mark Dayton of Minnesota has closed his Capitol Hill office and sent his staff home, arguing he had grown very concerned about the possibility of a pre-election terrorist attack on congressional buildings after reading classified documents.

Sounds like this is more than a nuisance.

"I do so out of extreme, but necessary, precaution to protect the lives and safety of my Senate staff and my Minnesota constituents," Dayton told reporters.

This is a Democratic Senator, nor a "fear-mongering neocon nutjob" of leftist fantasies. I don't think he would send his staff home if the Capitol was threatened by prostitutes or gangsters.
