    Lol, he's an escaped convict who is illegally posessing a gun and said Cortez should be shot on facebook from Toledo. Dude sounds like a real winner and should have been put back in jail before the comments were ever made. The real question is why he is being charged? Is it because he is already a convict? He didnt say he was going to shoot her so there are no legs to the lawsuit.

    I have mixed emotions on this one because since he didnt make a direct threat he has the first amendment freedom to make stupid remarks. On the other hand if he is found guilty that would set legal precedent for putting these liberal retards like antifa and Kathy Griffin behind bars although they are much more aggressive than this guy in Toledo.

    Illegal possession would be a chargeable crime for him.

    Nor sure where the claim comes from about him being an escaped convict. Outstanding warrants on a felon does not equal escaped convict. He did not even have a firearm that they could find...he had SEVEN rounds of ammunition. The closest they come to attaching him to a firearm is the claim that he carries concealed...must be WELL concealed if it was not on him during the search of person or residence.

    "...being a fugitive..."

    Sorry, guess I've watched too many movies. I translated incorrectly.

    Interesting that
    Only 10 people who live within Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional district have been recorded making donations to her reelection campaign in 2019, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of available Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.
    • Ocasio-Cortez outraised all other 87 freshmen representatives in the first half of 2019 in individual contributions, but the New York Democrat came in second-to-last place in terms of reported itemized contributions from the people she represents.
    • Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan also rank among the lowest-performing freshman representatives in terms of reported financial support from people who live within their districts.
    The known monetary support Ocasio-Cortez’s reelection campaign has received from the people she represents is minuscule compared to the 88-member freshman class of the House of Representatives.

    The average freshman representative’s reelection campaign received $107,141.29 in itemized contributions from their constituents in the first half of 2019, FEC filings the DCNF analyzed show. Ocasio-Cortez’s reported in-district fundraising haul of $1,525.50 was just 1.4% of that average.
