Florida Leftist Arrested After Threatening to Kill GOP Representative

A Florida leftist was arrested this week after threatening to kill Republican state Rep. Jose Felix Diaz (R-Miami).

Steve St. Felix threatened Rep. Diaz to “kill your ass” on Facebook.

The Miami Herald reported:

Two weeks after a U.S. congressman and four others were shot during a baseball practice in a Washington suburb by a man with a history of lashing out at Republicans, a Florida lawmaker decided he wasn’t taking any chances.

So Sunday, after someone threatened his life on a Facebook page, state Rep. Jose Felix Diaz, R-Miami, informed police.

And on Monday, Northwest Miami-Dade resident Steve St. Felix, 34, was arrested and charged with written threats with intent to do bodily injury. Police said St. Felix was “fed up” with the Republican Party — and that he hadn’t taken his meds when he posted the threat. It’s unclear what condition the medications were treating.

The threat — “I’ll kill your ass and you better not show up to the next REC meeting” — was quickly removed from the Facebook page, police said. It appeared to refer to the Republican Executive Committee, the name of the local Miami-Dade County GOP.
