Watch: Crazed Attacker Tries To Stab GOP Candidate For Governor

Pelosi and her kangaroo court can spout all the propaganda they want we know who’s really causing problems.

During a stump speech, Republican candidate Lee Zeldin was attacked by a crazy protestor who ripped the microphone from him and then tried to stab him.

David G. Jakubonis, 43, of Fairport, N.Y., was charged with a felony for the attack but was immediately 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,” he tweeted early Friday. “Law enforcement was on the scene within minutes. The attacker will likely be instantly released under NY’s laws.”

From Fox News:

Zeldin, who is the Republican candidate for governor in New York, predicted the alleged attacker would be released. Zeldin was giving a speech about bail reform at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post when the alleged assault happened. Jakubonis was tackled by AMVETS national Director Joe Chenelly, according to witnesses.

“His right hand came up, I assume out of his pocket, and he had a blade on his hand,” Chenelly told Fox News Digital. “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.”

After the attack, Zeldin’s campaign released a statement that thanked everyone for keeping him safe.

“Thank you to everyone who reached out following tonight’s attack in Fairport. Someone tried to stab me on stage during this evening’s rally, but fortunately, I was able to grab his wrist and stop him for a few moments until others tackled him. I’m ok, and @EspositoforNY, and all other attendees are safe. The attacker is in custody. Grateful for the attendees who stepped up quickly to assist and the law enforcement officers who quickly responded. I’m as resolute as ever to do my part to make NY safe again.”
