Florida Man Sentenced for Threatening Ilhan Omar

A Florida man was sentenced to three years of probation and fined $7,000 over a threatening email he sent to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in 2019.

Sarasota resident David Hannon, 67, apologized for his actions before U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle handed down the sentence, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

“I’m very, very sorry and very remorseful about my behavior that night,” Hannon told the judge. “I can’t believe I would do something as heinous as that.”

“I do have remorse that I did target Ms. Omar,” he said. “But I don’t have any hatred toward anyone, whether their race, creed, color, or nationality. This is the United States of America, and whatever people do and say, they have a right to do that. But I had no right to write that email.”

Hannon was intoxicated in July 2019 when he wrote an email to Omar with the subject line, “Your dead you radical Muslim.”

“We Are Ready To Carryout Mass Assassinations Against Alquida Radicals That Have Somehow Got Into Our American Political Parties,” the email read. “Your Already On The HIT LIST BY OUR AMERICAN PATRIOT ARMY AND THE MOUSAD!”

He also threatened other lawmakers affiliated with the so-called Squad — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).


In addition to the three years of probation and the $7,000 fine, the judge ordered Hannon to undergo mental health and substance abuse treatment and to refrain from contacting Omar.

Elizabeth Hannon Dillon, Hannon’s daughter, told the judge that her father’s email was former President Donald Trump’s fault.

“He was doing that because Trump told him to,” she said. “He was a Trump supporter, and now he regrets it.”

    Sure! Just like everything else “wrong” with the Nation, (at least, according to the Dems), it’s all Trump’s fault!

    1. Georgina says:

      If Trump had all the power they give him with the endless blame-gaming, he’d be way beyond Superman.

      1. Don says:

        Exactly…while Bozo Biden tries his best to take that power as the little tin dictator he thinks he is.

  2. Von Potter says:

    Rep. Ilhan Omar is the threat to the United States……….get her orange suit ready………..

    Regardless of one’s political allegiance, the daughter is as foolish as her father. Blaming Trump for what her father did is the same as Brandon blaming Putin fir all of the economic woes in the US.

    1. Don says:

      Yep….she’s worthless to humanity.

    If that had been a conservative politician, not a thing would have been done to the sender. Different rules for the hypocritical left.

  6. ZevbenNoah says:

    Most States, if not all of them, have laws prohibiting “criminal threatening.” While at the emotional level, one might agree with the sentiment, not “ALL” speech is protected. As Momma used to say, “stupid is as stupid does.”

    Trump is to blame. He’s the one spewing all the garbage. Trump’s power is bullying, belittling, lying, cheating, stealing and grifting. He has developed a cult that follows him shameless and without thought follows his direction and constantly supports him like good little cultist should.

    Therein lies Trump’s power. Politicians and citizens who jump to defend and support him even when he’s trying to overthrow our government. The major thing wrong with this country is the unthinking cultists who follow and provide him a political and criminal base for his nefarious deeds.

    Simply reading the comments is proof enough.

      Google ‘NYT Fact-Checked Trump Accomplishments’ make some popcorn, and enjoy. See the things the non-politician businessman that we ‘cultists’ HIRED to fix Oblamer’s F-ups actually did for the people…you know, the stuff the MSM would rather die than tell you about.

    If I was him, I would know whose NOT getting anything in my WILL!
