Teaching Assistant Placed On Leave Following ‘Kill Kavanaugh’ Tweet
This is not going to end well for Samantha Ness… The FBI is now looking into a tweet which reportedly referred to killing newly-confirmed U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The Twitter account of the person who posted the tweet has been taken down, as well as some of the messages blasting the post.
Shortly after being called out on the threat, Ness deleted the tweet and attempted to scrub her social media footprint, de-activating both her Twitter and Facebook. However, a plethora of screenshots remain from social media users, including a web archive of her post.
An alleged threat on social media has launched an investigation into a paraprofessional from Rosemount schools.
Social media erupted with activity after a tweet went out saying, “So whose gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?”
The tweet was referring to newly-confirmed U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Not long after Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the newest U.S. Supreme Court Justice, a Saturday post on social media received national attention.
Independent School District 917 Superintendent Mark Zuzek says the district heard several complaints about the social media post over the weekend.
He said the individual who posted the tweet is a paraprofessional at a school in Rosemount. More
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is also aware of the incident and will follow up as appropriate.
Please contact District Superintendent Mark Zuzek at 651-423-8229 for further questions relating to the school district’s involvement in the matter. (2/2)

Paid leave. Well, that’s a real punishment. She gets a vacation at taxpayers expense. I know it’s probably a teacher’s union deal, but it’s still wrong.
#SamanthaNess – PAID ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE FOR CALLING FOR THE DEATH OF AN AMERICAN! That’s what happens when #American public schools systems become contaminated with radical #Liberals, #Democrats, #Progressives! https://t.co/ht8t3dE8fE
