Secret Service Investigating DNC Delegate Who Threatened to Kill Romney

The Secret Service is looking into an incident in which a New York delegate at the Democratic National Convention said she would “like to kill” Mitt Romney if she ever sees him.

Julia Rodriguez made the remark Wednesday in a brief interview with a reporter for The Blaze website.  “He will destroy this country, completely. Romney will destroy this country,” she said. “If I see him, I would like to kill him.”

The startling remarks caught the attention of the Secret Service, which provides protection to the former Massachusetts governor.  “We are aware of the video and are taking the appropriate follow-up steps,” spokesman Ed Donovan said in an email.

The appropriate steps involve getting Julia her own show on MSNBC or Current TV.

    "…appropriate follow-up steps"???? WTF! They just arrested a guy (possibly high on marijuana) for tweeting that he wanted to kill Obama. Why isn't she sharing his cell????????????????
