UPDATE: A Minnesota special education teacher has resigned after she posted a message on Twitter exhorting her followers to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.


Original story:

A Minnesota teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave after allegedly sending a tweet that appears to call for the killing of new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?” read the tweet from a user with the handle @lookitsSammm. The Twitter account and tweet have since been deleted.

The teacher, listed as an instructor at the Intermediate School District 917’s Alliance Education Center in Rosemont, will be on leave "pending the outcome of the investigation," according to ISD 917 Superintendent Mark Zuzek.

“Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter,” Zuzek said in a statement.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune is not naming the teacher because she has not been charged with a crime.

A spokesman for the FBI in Minneapolis said Monday that the bureau was aware of the tweet. The Dakota County Sheriff’s Office also said that it was aware of the alleged tweet but neither the office nor Rosemount police were “currently investigating any incidents we believe to have happened at the school.”

Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate on Saturday by a 50-48 vote after an extremely contentious confirmation process, including uncorroborated allegations of sexual assault.

He was sworn in shortly after “so that he can begin to participate in the work of the Court immediately,” according to the statement from the Supreme Court. The high court just began a new session on October 1st.
