A Proud Boys Supporter Was Sentenced To Almost Three Years In Prison For Threatening To Kill A Senator

A man who applied to join the Proud Boys was sentenced Thursday to 33 months in prison after he threatened the life of then-Sen.-elect Raphael Warnock ahead of the Capitol riot in January 2021.

Eduard Florea used the social media app Parler to issue the threats against elected officials, trying to gather others to join him before the Jan. 6 insurrection, when a mob of supporters of then-president Donald Trump stormed the Capitol.

“Warnock is going to have a hard time casting votes for communist policies when he’s swinging with the f***ing fish,” Florea, a resident of Queens, New York, posted on Jan. 5.

“It’s time to unleash some violence,” he wrote.
