NEW JERSEY: School Board Member Faces Inquiry Over Post Hoping For Death Of Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib

USA Today reports:

A New Jersey school board member will likely face an ethics investigation for sharing posts disparaging of Muslims, including two Democratic congresswomen, on his personal Facebook page. The posts include one that states, “my life would be complete if she/they die” over a photograph of a U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a Michigan Democrat who is Muslim.

School Board Attorney Stephan R. Leone said Tuesday that the comments on Daniel Leonard’s Facebook page “are totally inappropriate, not condoned by the Board of Education, and do not reflect the board’s attitude or opinions.”

Leonard, a staunch Trump supporter, is a decorated combat veteran who served as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division in Afghanistan. He is no stranger to controversy. He frequently insults or bashes those who challenge his viewpoints using his personal Facebook page or his “Team Leonard” campaign page.

Leonard is up for reelection in November. Last week he was charged in an apparent road rage incident in which he crashed into a tree after chasing another motorist at “high rates of speed.”
