California man who threatened politicians, journalists sentenced to 3 years in prison

Source: LA Times

BY GREGORY YEE

A California man who threatened members of Congress and journalists regarding the outcome of the 2020 presidential election has been sentenced to three years in prison, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.

Robert Lemke previously pleaded guilty to making threatening interstate communications, according to the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York.

Lemke, 36, was also sentenced to three years of supervised release upon completion of his prison term, prosecutors said.

“Rather than attempting to effect change through the lawful forms of expression that all of us Americans still enjoy, Lemke sought to quell freedom of expression, to intimidate and instill fear in others by threats of violence,” U.S. Atty. Damian Williams said. “Today, [he] was rightly sentenced to prison for his conduct.”

1. great news

I hope the FBI, etc, is going to prosecute all these other MAGAts who do the same thing to Democrats. They are scaring off good people, which is likely the plan.

What compels these assholes to do this shit? Oh yeah, T****.
