First let me say violence in any form is reprehensible, next let me say, how does Jason Fischer not have an opponent yet? He ran a scorched earth campaign that he barely won which had to alienate his opponents, who was also a republican, base and he has taken so much special interest money that has to turn people off.
He has only represented himself and his donors one of which is his employer since he was elected and he is beatable if somebody would step up. Want proof look at the comments most of which are making fun of him or are against him.
Okay the story is somebody visited Fischer’s office and demanded he do something about assault weapons and when he didn’t get the response he wanted he assaulted a legislative aide, which again if it happened is not cool at all.
Fischer put this statement out on Facebook,
On Wednesday, a man, a coward really, forced himself into my district office in Jacksonville demanding that the legislature ban “assault weapons” and other firearms.
He then attacked my district aide and said he was trying to prove a point about “gun control.” This coward was inspired to violence by the political stunt that one of my colleagues pulled on Tuesday. Shame on both of them.
There is no justification, political or otherwise, for violently attacking an innocent person.
We’ve notified the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office
about the incident. Anyone with information about the assailant’s identity is urged to contact JSO immediately.
My district office will be closed until some additional security measures are put in place. Any constituents who wish to contact me in the meantime can do so by email or phone, Jason.Fischer@myfloridahouse.gov or (850) 717-5016.
I look forward to constructive, civil conversations about the issues important to Northeast Florida, especially as we wrap up the 2018 legislative session.
In response hilarity and some poignant comments ensued, its a public page but I deleted posters names and these are some of the comments.
