Registered Democrat arrested for threatening to kill Ron DeSantis, Marco Rubio, and Rick Scott

A registered Democrat in Florida was arrested for threatening to kill Republican politicians in the state.

“[Ron] DeSantis, Rick Scott and Marco Rubio are looting my state. Imma shot them,” Karen Jones, 55, posted on Twitter last week in response to a Washington Post reporter who shared an article about Florida potentially expanding its “stand your ground law.”

She was arrested on Saturday in her home by Palm Beach County authorities on three counts of written threats to kill or do bodily harm.

Jones admitted to writing the tweet but said it was meant to be a joke. A Palm Beach County detective, however, wrote in an affidavit that there was nothing suggesting the message was said in jest.

“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,” the detective wrote.

She was booked in the local county jail and held on a $15,000 bond. She was released on Sunday.
