Republican Gov Candidate Lee Zeldin’s Failed Assassin Released From Custody Hours Later


The man who attempted to assassinate Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) was charged with a felony and released from custody hours after the attack, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

David G. Jakubonis, 43, of Fairport NY, was charged with attempted assault in the second degree. After his arraignment in Perinton Town Court, he was released on his own recognizance.

Zeldin predicted the suspect would be released.

“His words as he tried to stab me a few hours ago were ‘you’re done’, but several attendees, including @EspositoforNY, quickly jumped into action & tackled the guy,” Tweeted Zeldin, who added that “Law enforcement was on the scene within minutes. The attacker will likely be instantly released under NY’s laws.”

According to AMVETS national director Joe Chenelly, who tackled the assailant, “His right hand came up, I assume out of his pocket, and he had a blade on his hand,” adding “His fingers were like two finger holes in the blade and lunged at the congressman. And Congressman Zeldin blocked the first lunge. And then as he tried to lunge again, I grabbed him from behind and tackled him down to the ground and held him on the ground.”

 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12
