It was about time a Democrat paid for their violent behavior…
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) will press charges against the woman who allegedly splashed a beverage on him.
The June 1st incident occurred following a town hall held by Gaetz at a restaurant in Florida. A video clip shared to social media shows Amanda Kondrat’yev, a Democrat who once challenged the Florida Republican for his congressional seat, allegedly tossing a drink at his chest.
According to the Pensacola News Journal, Kondrat’yev was taken into police custody and was later released on a $1,000 bond.

“I had a circumstance just a few weeks ago where someone threw a drink at me leaving a town hall meeting. I am going to press charges,” Gaetz said during an appearance on the Fox News Channel’s Hannity.
“If there are are no consequences laid out then maybe it’s me getting hit with a drink one time, but what if it’s a member of my staff and what if instead of a drink it’s acid or urine?” the Trump ally continued. “I think it’s really important to send a message that we as conservatives have a right to our views — just like anybody else.”
