The trainwreck that is the 2012 Democratic National Convention just keeps getting worse, with Drudge blaring the headline:
DEM DELEGATE WANTS TO ‘KILL’ ROMNEY SECRET SERVICE INVESTIGATES
The link goes to the Daily Caller, which reports:
A spokesman for the Secret Service told The Daily Caller that the agency is aware of video showing a delegate at the Democratic National Convention expressing a desire to “kill” Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
“We are aware of it,” Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie told TheDC on Thursday.
He said the department is “taking the appropriate follow-up steps” with the woman.
Video surfaced on Wednesday of a woman identifying herself as New York delegate Julia Rodriguez telling The Blaze, “If I see him” — in reference to Romney — “I would like to kill him.”
In the video, Rodriguez says she’s from Puerto Rico but she now lives in New York. She expressed her desire to kill the Republican nominee after saying “Romney will destroy this country.
The Blaze features the context of the shocking interview of delegate Rodriguez.
There is video at the link. There is no indication that the delegate meant the assassination threat as some sort of a “joke,” and as she repeatedly grabbed the microphone to speak into it, she knew her comments were being recorded.
It appeared last night that the Democratic Convention had hit its low point last night when they denied God three times. Who could have ever guessed they would add a videotaped assassination threat from an official delegate.
