Authorities arrested a registered Florida Democrat after she allegedly tweeted her desire to shoot Gov. Ron DeSantis and U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott — all Republicans — for “looting her state.”

According to Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies, Karen Jones, 55, wrote, “DeSantis, Rick Scott and Marco Rubio are looting my state. Imma shot them.”

Fox News’ Danielle Wallace has more:

Palm Beach County sheriff deputies responded to Jones’ home in Lantana Saturday and arrested her on three counts of written threats to kill or do bodily harm.

After her rights were read, Jones allegedly admitted to deputies that she wrote the tweet but said it was meant to be a joke, the Miami Herald reported, citing court documents.

“When I made the observation that there were no commonly used terminology to show the post was a joke, Jones stated that anyone who follows her knows her sense of humor,” Detective M. Horton wrote in the arrest affidavit.

Jones was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Saturday on a $15,000 bond. She was released by Sunday, Fox 35 Orlando reported, citing jail records.

Jones’ remarks came after she retweeted an article critical of Gov. DeSantis’ effort to expand Florida’s stand-your-ground law.

What are all of the marbles in her head loose? Who in their right mind would say this in the current political climate. She should be in jail (unless she made bail), and prosecuted to the full extent of the lawa. BTW, I am a Florida resident.

I’m not sure what the laws are regarding threatening to kill someone in Fl but in Ca it’s called terrorist threats and is considered a violent felony. I’m sure it’s not significantly different out there and it’s NOT a joke and it’s NOT humor. It’s intended to strike fear into the target to force them to change something they are doing.

It does not apply to Democrats. Just look at what Hillary, Bill and Obama have gotten away with. And Comey, Clapper and Brennan. IF we had justice we would not have all these federal judges denying the efforts to stop the voter fraud. Don’t lose track of who these judges are.

Be patient and have faith. This had to happen in order to awaken he people to what is really going on in America and around the World. The Media have deceived the masses for far too long, and that is why you have dual truths and a divided Nation. Media sow discord, lies and deception and those who blindly believe them doubt truth or are fooled! But once all this election fraud Country wide is dealt with Gitmo are going to be full! And Media are going down for Treason as well as their puppet masters. Trust in Gods messenger President Trump.

I don’t believe you know God at all. IF you did, you would know what the Bible says about LAST DAYS;

Dems have seen for a long time that they can say or do anything with impunity. Threaten to kill someone or actually do it by driving drunk, it’s okay for them.

Have you ever seen the movie “Red Tails” (Tuskegee Airmen)? There’s a priceless line in there about white people being the truest ‘colored’ people. When whites are angry, they turn red. When jealous, they turn green, when cowardly, they turn yellow. How can anyone say whites are not people of color!? 😉

That is (of course) due to the “double standards of justice” that is only allowed to democommunists. The rest of us have to by the laws as written.

Really should hold the democratic politicians accountable for threatening the President also. What about AOC threatening all of the Republican voters?
