Woman Arrested for Online Threats to Florida Politicians



A woman is facing criminal charges for making a threat on social media to shoot Florida’s governor and two U.S. senators, adding that the politicians were “looting” the state.

Karen Jones, 55, was arrested at her South Florida home last Saturday. She is facing three charges of making written threats to kill or do bodily harm to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and U.S. senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, according to an arrest report.

All three elected officials are Republicans.

Jones posted on Twitter last week, “DeSantis, Rick Scott and Marco Rubio are looting my state. Imma shoot them,” according to the arrest report.

During an interview with detectives, Jones said she made the post as a joke.
