(LibertySons.org) – A Keene State College freshman just confessed to threatening the life of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). The young man, arrested in April, pleaded guilty to transmitting a threat to injure another person via interstate commerce. The Boston Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, along with the US Capitol Police, ultimately brought the man to justice.
A federal grand jury indicted 23-year-old Allan Poller on April 26. A press release from the Department of Justice (DOJ) indicates that the young man made a call to the House of Representatives on March 29, 2023, at roughly 12:20 a.m. He left a voicemail, spelling out his name and giving his phone number before going on his threatening tirade. The caller shared his dismay over a house member “coming for the gays,” noting that eventually, the LGBTQ+ community would lash back. Poller added that he would personally shoot the individual in the head if he continued to attack gay rights.
The DOJ’s documents don’t specify whose name was on the voicemail, but Gaetz shared during his April 10 podcast of Firebrand with Matt Gaetz that Poller had specifically addressed him. He said that the Left paints Republicans as evil, racist fascists “who must be stopped at all costs,” and then they act surprised when extremists break out into random acts of violence. He played a recording of the threatening message, which was graphic and riddled with expletive language, calling out Gaetz specifically by name. The representative said he wasn’t sure what he did to gain the 23-year-old’s attention, noting the most he’d done against the LGBTQ+ crowd was work to keep taxpayer money from funding drag queen performances at military events.
Gaetz extended his gratitude to the FBI for its work, stating that the people in his office don’t deserve the type of treatment people like Poller subject them to. He said that the threat toward him was just one example of the Left’s agenda to incite violence through political instigations.
Poller faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. He will return to court on January 18, 2024, for sentencing.
