The teacher is question is Samantha Ness, who works at Alliance Education Center in Rosemount, Minnesota. According to the staff directory, Ness works the district’s Students With Unique Needs (SUN) program. The program works with students with autism spectrum disorders, developmental cognitive disabilities, and emotional behavior disorders, Alpha News reported.
According to Superintendent Mark Zuzek of Intermediate School District 917, the district received complaints about the teacher’s tweet.
“Over the weekend, the district has received a complaint regarding an employee. 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,” Zuzek said in a statement. . .
The tweets were made hours after Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Ness deleted both her Facebook and Twitter accounts but Twitter users screencapped her threats. (Read more from “Whoa, Buddy: Special Education Teacher Tweets About ‘Killing Kavanaugh'” HERE)
Kavanaugh Supporters Celebrate, Spark Social Media Outrage With beers4brett Hashtag
By USA Today. Supporters of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh are raising glasses on social media under a #Beers4Brett hashtag to congratulate the self-described beer lover on his hard-fought confirmation.
Even Texas Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee got in on the act, sharing a photo of a champagne flute in a tweet reading, “Not quite #Beers4Brett but #Bubbly4Brett instead.”
Many decried the celebration as being in poor taste given that Kavanaugh’s confirmation fight centered on psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation that he sexually assaulted her in 1982 when they were in high school. Ford claimed Kavanaugh was drunk during the alleged assault.
