This so-called teacher needs to be prosecuted to the maximum penalty under the law.
A special education teacher in Rosemount, Minnesota, has been put on paid administrative leave after she called for the killing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Twitter.
In a now-deleted tweet, the teacher, Samantha Ness, tweeted a sick question.
“So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?”
While her call to violence is the most concerning issue, it’s also worth pointing out that the woman struggled with basic grammar — and she’s supposed to be teaching children.
ISD 917 Superintendent Mark Zuzek confirmed to the Star Tribune that the teacher has been put on leave “pending the outcome of the investigation.”
Further, the FBI is reportedly aware of the tweet. It’s unclear whether they plan to conduct a formal investigation. Several Twitter users also reported the tweet to the Secret Service.
Ness has cause to be concerned.
“The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota has prosecuted at least two people in recent years for making threats against federal district court judges in the state,” the report added.
Kavanaugh was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday with a 50-48 vote. In one of his first acts as a justice, Kavanaugh made history by hiring four female clerks.
