An apparent left-wing activist left Congressman Steve Scalise a horrifying death threat on his voicemail–even as the congressman still recovers from being shot by a Bernie supporter last year.
Daily Wire reports:
If it weren’t enough for Rep. Steve Scalise (R-NY) to have been shot in June 2017 by a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter, a man from a town eight miles southeast of Niagara Falls has been arrested for leaving a threatening voicemail for Scalise, stating, “You are taking ours, we are taking yours. Anytime, anywhere. We know where they are. We are not going to feed them sandwiches, we are going to feed them lead.”
Police said the complete voice message was as follows:
Hey, listen, this message is for you and the people that sent you there. You are taking ours, we are taking yours. Anytime, anywhere. We know where they are. We are not going to feed them sandwiches, we are going to feed them lead. Make no mistake you will pay. Ojo por ojo, diente por diente [Spanish for ‘an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth’]. That is our law and we are the majority. Have a good day.
Scalise’s spokeswoman Lauren Fine stated, “Whip Scalise is grateful to law enforcement for their actions. He will never forget how their heroism saved his life and those of his colleagues last year. As he has said before, there is absolutely no place in our political discourse for violent threats.”
The perpetrator was arrested and charged.
