New York Times reports:
The videos show Mr. Zeldin, standing on the bed of a truck, addressing supporters gathered outside a V.F.W. hall in Fairport, N.Y., when a man approaches him slowly from the right, grabs him by the arm and brandishes a weapon. Mr. Zeldin responds by grabbing the man’s wrist and is then joined by several men in containing the attacker.
A 42-year-old fourth-term congressman from Long Island, Army reservist and ally of former President Donald J. Trump, Mr. Zeldin won the Republican nomination for governor handily last month.
He has made crime a centerpiece of his campaign for governor, using apocalyptic terms to paint a dark picture of the state of public safety and to appeal to New Yorkers’ sense of unease. He has specifically pinned blame on rising crime on Democrats and Ms. Hochul, calling on them to reinstate most cash bail and ratchet up policing.
David G. Jakubonis, an Iraq War veteran is the suspect in the assault of the sitting member of Congress, and gubernatorial candidate for a major state. Jakubonis was immediately released from jail without bail!
Fox News has learned:
A man who allegedly attacked Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., with a sharp object at a campaign stop in Perinton, New York, Thursday evening was charged with a felony and released from custody within hours of his arrest, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department said.
The suspect, identified as David G. Jakubonis, 43 of Fairport, N.Y., was charged with attempted assault in the second degree. He was arraigned in Perinton Town Court and released on his own recognizance, the sheriff’s department said.
A Growing Trend
It all started with the “‘scoff’ heard around the world”.
Since then: Steve Scalise, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Pam Bondi, Ted Cruz, Rodney Davis, Richard Burr, Brian Mast, Rand Paul, Rand Paul again!, Brett Kavanaugh, and now Lee Zeldin have all had their lives threatened by leftist anarchists. Ontop of the fact the same liberals burned America for 5 months in 2020.
Democrats won’t be happy until a Republican lawmaker is dead.
