Man Arrested After Leaving Rep. Scalise Threatening Voicemail in Spanish ‘Make No Mistake, You Will Pay – We Are the Majority’
A 63-year-old man named Carlos Bayon was arrested Thursday after leaving Rep. Steve Scalise and another unidentified lawmaker threatening voicemails.
Bayon, a New York resident, was charged with making threats across state lines.
Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) and his aides were shot during baseball practice in Virginia last June by a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter.
Scalise recovered from a gunshot wound to the hip after several emergency surgeries and months of recovery.
Carlos Bayon even left part of the threatening voicemail to Scalise in Spanish.

“Whip Scalise is grateful to law enforcement for their actions. He will never forget how their heroism saved his life and those of his colleagues last year,” Scalise spokeswoman Lauren Fine told The Hill in a statement. “As he has said before, there is absolutely no place in our political discourse for violent threats.”
Scalise and a second lawmaker from Washington state, who has not been identified, received the voicemails on June 30, 2018.
“Hey listen, this message is for you and the people that sent you there. You are taking ours, we are taking yours. Anytime, anywhere. We know where they are,” the voicemails said, according to Buffalo’s ABC affiliate WKBW. “We are not going to feed them sandwiches, we are going to feed them lead. Make no mistake you will pay. Ojo por ojo, diente por diente (Spanish for “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth). That is our law and we are the majority. Have a good day.”
If found guilty, Bayon could face up to five years in prison and a penalty as high as $250,000.
The Fake News media’s manufactured crisis over ‘Trump’s cruel immigration policy’ of separating children from their ‘parents’ is going to get somebody killed.
A Stuart, Florida man was arrested in June after he threatened to kill Rep. Brian Mast’s (R-FL) children over ‘Trump’s immigration policy.’
