Cesar Sayoc identified as Florida man arrested in mail bombings: report

Published

on

A suspect has been identified in a string of mail bombs sent to critics of President Donald Trump.

Senior law enforcement officials identified the suspect as 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Investigators used forensic evidence to trace Sayoc to a mail processing facility in Plantation, and he was arrested at a nearby AutoZone.

Video showed his white van covered with photos of Trump and other right-wing paraphernalia, and Twitter users shared photos of the van they shot in recent days in south Florida.

Other stickers showed prominent liberals with bullseyes over them, and a sticker that says, “CNN sucks.”

“I’m Donald Trump and I approve this message,” read others.

Sayoc, who is originally from New Jersey, has a lengthy criminal record dating back at least 20 years, including arrests for terroristic threats against judges.

Public records show Sayoc is a registered Republican who appears to have owned a dry cleaning business and a catering business.

His social media profiles, which were active this week, showed Sayoc attended several Trump rallies and frequently attacked some of his alleged bombing targets.

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that a new lawsuit seeks to remove Daniel Cameron from the ballot as the Kentucky GOP's nominee for state attorney general.

According to the lawsuit, filed by retired union worker and "concerned citizen" Joseph Leon Jackson Sr. in Jefferson Circuit Court, Cameron does not meet the office requirement of having practiced law for eight years — because although he was admitted by the Kentucky Bar Association in 2011, he spent two of the following years clerking for U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove.
