Venezuelan General Consul in Miami declared persona non grata by State Dept.

Livia Antonieta Acosta, the Venezuelan General Consul stationed in Miami who was recently implicated in an exposed plot by Venezuela, Iran, and Cuba to launch terrorist cyber attacks on the U.S. has finally been declared persona non grata by the State Department and kicked out of the United States.

Via Penúltimos Días (my translation):

It appears that the U.S. government has declared the General Consul of Venezuela in Miami, Livia Antonieta Acosta, persona non grata and has given her 72 hours to leave the country. On December 10, 2011, several U.S. congressional leaders asked for an investigation into the General Consul for her alleged connection with a possible cyber attack on the U.S. by agents of Iran, Cuba, and Venezuela. In a letter sent Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, four leaders of congress expressed their "deep concern" over the diplomatic credentials of Acosta who has been heading up the Miami office since last March.
