A spokesman for the Secret Service said the agency is “aware” of the video published by TheBlaze that featured a Democratic National Convention delegate saying she would like to “kill” Mitt Romney.
“We are aware of it and we will conduct the appropriate follow-up,” Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie told TheBlaze Thursday.
Ogilvie said he could not talk specifically about what kind of follow-up the agency was conducting.
In TheBlaze’s video, a woman who identified herself as New York delegate Julia Rodriguez said Romney would “destroy this country” if elected president.
“He will destroy this country completely, she said. “Romney will destroy his country…if I see him I would like to kill him.”
A representative from the New York State Democratic Committee could not immediately be reached.
