In the wake of the capture of the mail bomb suspect, the country has leaned much of the Florida resident. One of the most surprising details to come out was his claim to Native American ancestry. His van was littered with stickers that said "Native Americans for Trump" and on his Twitter page he marked he was the "Current Booking Agent/ Sales/ Marketing/Promotions/Project Mgr Live Events" for the Seminole Hard Rock Live.
Bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc claimed he worked at Hard Rock, but its owners deny he ever was employed at the company… https://t.co/Q96ieywyrP— Rolling Stone (@Rolling Stone) 1540584068.0
However, in a recent statement to Rolling Stone, a spokesperson for the tribe stated that neither Cesar Sayoc, nor any of his aliases not only have never worked for the Hard Rock Cafe Inc, but that they weren't even part of the Seminole tribe of Florida. This makes the stickers plastering his van bragging about his Seminole tribe ancestry more than a little suspect.
As more news comes out about the suspect, people are trying to keep up.

Others turned it on the political ideology he supported.

@nycsouthpaw He certainly cannot be called the seminal Seminole, and also is not the model of a modern major General.— Greg Jindal (@Greg Jindal) 1540601319.0
The suspect faces 48 years on five different charges related to the bombs sent in the mail to prominent Democratic personalities, including former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
