More threats of violence from the Left.
This time directed at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), 77, who is recovering from a broken shoulder from a fall. (H/t Daily Wire)
Last night, a group of Democrats demonstrated in front of Sen. McConnell’s home in Louisville, Kentucky.
Kentuckian Ben Goldey, who is Capitol Hill’s Communications Director, tweeted this video of the protest, in which the voice of a man is heard saying (0:24 mark): “Hopefully” somebody will use a “voodoo doll” on McConnell.
Then a woman is heard saying (0:32 mark):
“Just stab the motherf*cker in the heart.”

Threatening U.S. government officials is a felony under federal law:
- Threatening the President of the United States is a felony under 18 U.S.C. § 871, punishable by up to 5 years of imprisonment, and is investigated by the Secret Service.
- Threatening other U.S. government officials, such as Sen. McConnell, is a Class C or D felony, usually carrying maximum penalties of 5 or 10 years under 18 U.S.C. § 875, 18 U.S.C. § 876 and other statutes. Such threats are investigated by the FBI.
