Man Who Tried to Kill Lee Zeldin Gets Light Charges Filed Before Being Released Immediately

Consider the January 6th political prisoners who are still rotting in jail. They were allegedly a threat to members of Congress.

Now, look at David G. Jakubonis. He went on stage with a weapon and attempted to stab a sitting member of Congress in the neck. He was charged with “Attempted Assault in the 2nd Degree” and released immediately.

Yes, we have a two-tier justice system. Here’s information from his booking:

– On July 21, 2022 at approximately 8:00 p.m., Representative Lee Zeldin was on stage giving a campaign speech at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8495 at 300 Macedon Center Road, in the Town of Perinton. A male from the crowd climbed up on the stage and approached Zeldin. The male had a weapon in his hand, swung it towards Zeldin’s neck, and told him, “You’re done.” Members of the audience and Rep. Zeldin’s campaign restrained the male until deputies arrived and took him into custody. There were no injuries. The suspect is identified as David G. Jakubonis, 43 y/o, of Fairport.

Jakubonis is charged with: Attempted Assault in the Second Degree (E-Felony)

Jakubonis was arraigned in Perinton Town Court and released on his own recognizance.

This is ludicrous in every way. If Kathy Hochul had been attacked in the same manner by a Republican, the attacker would be in jail right now charged with attempted murder.
