Liberal Hypocrisy

Special Ed Teacher Who Tweeted About Killing Kavanaugh Has Resigned

The threatening message was enough for some to notify the FBI (and this person spent time around kids?)

A Rosemount, Minnesota, special education teacher has resigned after she posted a threatening message on Twitter encouraging her followers to “take one for the team” and kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh (shown above left), Fox News Insider and other outlets reported.

The as-yet-unnamed teacher had been placed on paid administrative leave after allegedly sending a tweet that read, “So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?”

The tweet was from a user with the handle @lookitsSammm; the Twitter account and tweet both have now been deleted.

The (Minneapolis) Star Tribune won’t name the teacher because she hasn’t been charged with a crime, noted Fox News Insider, but the horrendous tweet is being investigated. (A typical classroom is shown above right.)

A spokesman for the FBI in Minneapolis said Monday that the bureau was aware of the tweet after being notified by several individuals, and the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office also said it was aware of it, but neither the office nor Rosemount police were investigating “any incidents we believe to have happened at the school,” noted Fox News Insider.

“Our Office is aware of an incident involving alleged social media use by an employee of a school within Dakota County,” tweeted the Dakota County sheriff’s office. “Neither the City of Rosemount Police Department nor our Office are currently investigating any incidents we believe to have happened at the school.”

They continued, “The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is also aware of the incident and will follow up as appropriate. Please contact District Superintendent Mark Zuzek … for further questions relating to the school district’s involvement in the matter.”

Kavanaugh was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court by the Senate last Saturday by a 50-48 vote, after an extremely contentious and bitter confirmation process that included 11th-hour, uncorroborated allegations of sexual assault and other misconduct by three separate women.

Dangerous rhetoric from inflamed leftists aside, the Supreme Court’s newest justice, supported unwaveringly by President Donald Trump throughout the process, got to work Tuesday, and will now be considering important cases as one of the nine members of the nation’s highest court.

While legal experts predict that Kavanaugh will have great influence in shaping the law in many areas, they contend it might take some time for his impact to be fully felt.

The current term does not have many hot-button issues so far.

“As it is, the term is kind of low-key for now,” Ilya Shapiro, a senior fellow in constitutional studies at the libertarian Cato Institute, told LifeZette.

And Kavanaugh missed a  few high-profile cases that are on the docket because of the sexual assault accusations that delayed his confirmation, Shapiro told LifeZette.

“Ironically, most — if not all — of the easily identifiable cases were already argued this past week,” he noted.
