A year before Cesar Sayoc Jr. allegedly sent mail bombs to prominent Democrats, including George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, he set his sights on Ilya Somin, a professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University. Sayoc sent him death threats on Facebook after Somin appeared on Fox News last year to discuss immigration, Somin said Monday. Somin shares his thoughts on Sayoc’s threats and how he responds to online critics who get nasty.
