Wilson: People ‘Making Fun’ of Congress Should Be Prosecuted

Addressing reporters on Tuesday outside of the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children in Florida, Rep. Frederica Wilson said people who are “making fun” of members of Congress online should be “prosecuted.”

“Those people who are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace, and there is no need for anyone to think that is unacceptable [sic],” Wilson said.

“We’re gonna shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted,” she added. “You cannot intimidate members of Congress, frighten members of Congress. It is against the law, and it’s a shame in this United States of America.”
