In June, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was assaulted by his former opponent during an appearance.
Amanda L. Kondrat’yev, who ran against Gaetz in 2016, has now pleaded guilty and faces up to one year in prison.
Rep. Gaetz was appearing at a Town Hall in Florida when the attacks took place.
As he was leaving the building, he was greeted with jeers, with one person throwing what was identified as a milkshake at him. In the video of Gaetz leaving the event, you can clearly see him startled as the attack took place.
The UK’s milkshaking protests crossed the pond to Pensacola.

Not only did Kondrat’yev’s supporters cheer her attack, but they also threatened to do much worse to Gaetz. For his part, Rep. Gaetz later laughed off the incident and thanked local law enforcement.
Clearly it takes more than a drink to slow down our great team.
We are always thankful to the brave law enforcement officials who keep everyone safe at our events. https://t.co/njWuBquiRs

On Thursday, Kondrat’yev pleaded guilty to assault charges. Her sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 17.
She will face as much as one year in jail for her actions.
The Violent Left
While the left constantly accuses conservatives of being the violent ones, it is the left that keeps getting arrested for violence! Not only that, their elected representatives are the ones regularly inciting violence with their words.
As an example, look back to when Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) encouraged people to get into the face of Trump officials if they see them in public.
Ted Cruz and his wife were confronted while they were out at a restaurant. Tomi Lahren had water thrown at her while dining with her parents. Sarah Sanders was forced to leave a local restaurant.
You just don’t hear similar experiences about Democrats involving conservatives, ever!
While conservatives continue to be demonized, clearly, the left is the party of violence and intolerance.
