Matt Gaetz asks judge to sentence Pensacola drink-thrower to prison

U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz is asking the federal court to sentence Amanda Kondrat'yev the woman who threw a drink on the congressman after a Pensacola campaign event in June to "some time of incarceration," saying that the message needs to be sent to supporters and opponents that violence won't be tolerated.

Kondrat'yev, 35, is scheduled to be sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in August to the charge of assaulting a U.S. congressman. She admitted to throwing a cup full of red liquid at Gaetz as he was leaving the Brew Ha Ha restaurant for an "Open Gaetz" event on June 1.

Kondrat'yev faces up to a year in prison, a $100,000 fine or five years of probation, a fate that a federal judge will decide Monday.

In a victim impact statement provided to the court, a copy of which Gaetz's press secretary provided to the News Journal, Gaetz argues that not sentencing Kondrat'yev to prison will send a message to his supporters that violence will be tolerated.

1. The scene in the Wizard of Oz where the wicked witch is melting.

Meanwhile, the GOP does nothing as thousands of people are killed by guns every year.

So yes Matt, violence is tolerated.

4. Dear homeless Florida panhandle citizens:

Need somewhere nice and warm to spend the next few winter months? Want a clean bed and three meals a day?
Just throw a cup of some kind of liquid on Mike Gaetz (R - The Dark Side) and get free food and lodging!

5. Just make sure it is a non-alcoholic drink.

Because if there is alcohol in it, Matt might actually thank you instead.

8. So he thinks a drink thrower deserves a harsher sentence than a man that commited extortion,

16. Talk about abuse of power. Who does he think he is?

In the meantime, he'll protect a criminal in the White House and refuse to regulate guns so our children aren't killed while attending school. Big man! Powerful man!

17. And he supports a president who sends messages to his supporters that violence is ENCOURAGED ??

Uglicans are truly, truly blind to irony.

"not sentencing Kondrat'yev to prison will send a message to his supporters that violence will be tolerated." {clutches pearls}
