During a campaign event in June, Amanda Kondrat’yev threw a red drink at the congressman from the Florida panhandle. She was there along with other protesters who shouted at him and held signs telling him to “wipe the blood off his hands” and shamed him for his “A+” rating from the NRA.
Gaetz tweeted the following statement in response to the sentencing:
“I am pleased with the court’s decision today to sentence Amanda Kondrat’yev to 15 days in jail and one year probation. Physical assault has no place in our political discourse, and if individuals choose to engage in such activities at our events they will be prosecuted. I am grateful law enforcement and our judicial system recognized this principle today, and I remain committed to maintaining a safe environment for my constituents at future events.”
