     Another liberal Dem has been caught.  A registered Democrat in Florida was arrested Saturday for allegedly threatening on social media to hoot Republican politicians Gov. Ron DeSantis and U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott.  "DeSantis, Rick Scott and Marco Rubio are looting my state. Imma shot them,” Karen Jones, 55, allegedly wrote on Twitter last week.

     Palm Beach County sheriff deputies responded to Jones' home in Lantana Saturday and arrested her on three counts of written threats to kill or do bodily harm. After her rights were read, Jones allegedly admitted to deputies that she wrote the tweet but said it was meant to be a joke, the Miami Herald reported, citing court documents.

     
“When I made the observation that there were no commonly used terminology to show the post was a joke, Jones stated that anyone who follows her knows her sense of humor,” Detective M. Horton wrote in the arrest affidavit. Jones was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Saturday on a $15,000 bond. She was released by Sunday, Fox 35 Orlando reported, citing jail records.
