After her identity began circulating online, Ness also deleted her Facebook page.

Now, the school district that employs Samantha Ness has announced that she has been placed on administrative leave. In a statement released on Monday, the district made the announcement.

“Over the weekend, the district has received a complaint regarding an employee,” the statement said. “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. ”

The Dakota County Sheriff’s Office also released a statement via Twitter, stating they are not investigating the matter themselves, but the local office of the FBI is aware of the matter.

The FBI has not made a statement about the matter.

Samantha Ness has not made any public statements since the controversy exploded.

Even if she wasn’t completely serious, a prosecution would not be unheard of. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that the Minnesota Attorney General has prosecuted two people for social media threats against federal judges in recent years.
