Breitbart reported on Gaetz’s statement, saying he responded to the incident in a tweet, writing: “Clearly it takes more than a drink to slow down our great team. We are always thankful to the brave law enforcement officials who keep everyone safe at our events.”
According to the Pensacola News Journal, Kondrat’yev filed a lawsuit against Pensacola in a bid to have the city remove a Bayview Park cross. The newspaper reports the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center and the Freedom From Religion Foundation sued the city on behalf of Kondra’yev and several other Pensacola residents.
Gaetz offered to debate Kondrat’yev about the cross — an offer she accepted, but the planned face-off fell through.
The incident comes after a wave of “milkshake” assaults on pro-Brexit candidates, including Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, during the E.U. elections in Britain.

The left celebrated on social media by saying she should have thrown something worse on him. They claimed he deserved it because he’s Trump’s “attack dog”.
It turns out, Amanda L. Kondrat’Yev was his 2016 opponent, who Gaetz soundly defeated.
