Virginia Kruta | Associate Editor

A former Congressional staffer says she reported Cesar Sayoc to Twitter for threatening her life — nearly two weeks before he was arrested for possible involvement in the potential explosives sent to a number of high-profile Democrats.

Rochelle Ritche, a political commentator and media strategist, tweeted, “Hey @Twitter remember when I reported the guy who was making threats towards me after my appearance on @FoxNews and you guys sent back a bs response about how you didnt find it that serious. Well guess what its the guy who has been sending #bombs to high profile politicians!!!!”

Ritchies tweets included screenshots of the threat she received — Sayoc allegedly warned her to “hug your loved ones real close every time you leave home” — and of Twitters response telling her that none of the rules against abusive behavior had been violated.
