Teacher on leave for tweet threat against Kavanaugh
ROSEMOUNT, Minn. (AP) — A Twin Cities area teacher is on leave after tweeting a threat to new U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The Rosemount special education teacher has since deleted her Twitter account, but a post which read "so whose gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh" was reported by Twitter users to the FBI and Secret Service.
The Star Tribune reports the FBI in Minneapolis says it's aware of the tweet.
ISD 917 Superintendent Mark Zuzek confirmed the district received a complaint about an employee over the weekend and places the employee on paid administrative leave while the matter is investigated.
It's not yet clear whether the teacher will be charged with a crime. The U.S. Attorney's Office has prosecuted at least two people in recent years for making threats against federal judges in Minnesota.
