Wicker says he hired accused letter writer as Elvis impersonator

U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker says he had hired suspected ricin letter sender Paul Kevin Curtis as an Elvis impersonator for a party Wicker and his wife threw.

“I have indeed met the gentleman before,” Wicker said in a statement to the Clarion-Ledger on Thursday. “He’s an entertainer. He’s an Elvis impersonator. He entertained at a party my wife and I helped give for a young couple that were getting married.”
