Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has been the target of several politically motivated death threats, but federal prosecutors aren’t going after the man making the threats.
In several explicit voicemails to the congressman’s office, a caller threatened the congressman’s life. One such message said:
“Gaetz, you pathetic piece of s***. You know that I could blow your f***ing head clean off your shoulders from over a mile away. Watch your back b****, you pathetic little piece of s***. You got your head so far up Trump’s a** but I could still take it off your shoulders. F*** you, Gaetz. I’m coming after you.”
Clearly, this is a violent threat against a member of Congress. It didn’t take federal agents long to track down the man who made the threat, but prosecutors are declining to arrest the man responsible.
