(BLP) – Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY), who is currently the Republican nominee for governor of New York in this year’s midterm elections, was attacked by an attempted assassin on Thursday.
One day later, his attacker is free thanks to the criminal justice reform policies supported by the Radical Left.
David Jakubonis, 43, has been charged with second-degree attempted assault for the attack on Zeldin. He was released on his own recognizance due to lax bail requirements.
Zeldin predicted that this would happen before his wannabe assassin was freed. He made it clear that the assassin was out to take his life, saying “you’re done” as he lunged at Zeldin and attacked him.
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.
Law enforcement was on the scene within minutes.
The attacker will likely be instantly released under NY’s laws. pic.twitter.com/wZEyIyrjFe

Big League Politics has reported on how New York is spiraling out of control due to the war on the rule of law by the radical leftist Democrats in power:
“Since 2019, New York City has experienced a considerable growth in crime.
The Daily Mail reported that major crimes rose by 22.5 percent in February according to NYPD data. This was accompanied by a 7.1 percent increase in shootings, robbery, assault, burglary, grand larceny, and grand larceny auto crimes.
According to Fox5, police are blaming criminal justice reforms for this uptick in crime.
Reports indicate that there were 16,343 major crimes reported in the first two months of 2020 compared to 13,648 during the same period in 2019. This marks an increase of 2,695.
During the first 58 days of 2020, 482 people who were previously arrested for committing felonies such as robbery or burglary were arrested again for committing an additional 846 crimes.
35 percent, or 299, of those were arrested for committing the following major crimes: Murder, rape, robbery, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny, and grand larceny auto.
Law enforcement officials claim that all of the suspects who had been arrested would have usually been incarcerated prior to the passage of new bail reform laws.
On January 1, 2020, New York State introduced comprehensive criminal justice legislation, which included the abolition of cash bail for most misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies, such as robbery.
As of now, judges are required to let individuals charged with such crimes go free without cash bail.
New York’s controversial “no-bail law” is expected to hinder the use of cash bail and pretrial detention in approximately 90 per cent of arrests. It also bolsters measures designed to ensure a defendant’s right to a speedy trial.”
New Yorkers need to elect Zeldin in order to stop the madness that is happening and save their state. Otherwise, it will continue to fall into socialism and ruin.
