Rosemount school staffer who tweeted Brett Kavanaugh threat has resigned

The special ed school staffer was being investigated over the tweet.

The Rosemount special education school staffer who posted a threatening tweet about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has resigned.

Mark Zuzek, the superintendent of Intermediate School District 917, confirmed that the Alliance Education Center employee has left her post after being placed on paid leave amid an investigation into a tweet she posted over the weekend.

The tweet, which has since been deleted, said: "So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?"

The tweet was reported to the FBI and the Secret Service by Twitter users, prompting the investigation that led to her resignation.

"The employee has voluntarily resigned from their position with the school district, and therefore is no longer employed by Intermediate School District 917," Zuzek said on the school district's website on Tuesday.

"The actions of the employee did not occur at school, and there were no school devices, equipment, or other school staff involved in the actions. At no time were students or staff in danger," he added.

"The employee was placed on paid administrative leave and an investigation conducted."

Kavanaugh tweet

The Alliance Education Center is a school for Students with Unique Needs (SUN), including those on the autism spectrum and those with emotional behavior disorders.

The tweet was posted in the hours after Kavanaugh was confirmed as the newest Supreme Court Justice on Saturday, following a contentious confirmation process as he faced allegations of attempted sexual assault dating back to high school.

The Atlantic reports that the Secret Service has been investigating multiple death threats against Kavanaugh during and in the wake of his confirmation.

Threats have also been leveled at one of his accusers, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who reportedly has not been able to return to her home because of threats against her and her family's lives, The Hill reports.
