A teacher in Minnesota was placed ‘on paid leave’ earlier this week following a vicious tweet that urged liberal activists to “kill” President Trump’s newest appointment to the US Supreme Court.
The unnamed instructor took to Twitter Saturday just hours after the Senate voted to place Judge Brett Kavanaugh on the nation’s highest court, writing “So whose gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?”
“Over the weekend, the district has received a complaint regarding an employee,” said Mark A. Zuzek, the superintendent of Intermediate School District #917. “The employee has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.”
“Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter,” he added.
A spokesperson for the FBI in Minneapolis confirmed Tuesday that the bureau is aware of the post and is actively investigating.
