In another collection of words that sums up our downright nonsensical discourse in 2019, a Pete Buttigieg staffer apologized to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) after commenting that he should have a cup full of urine thrown on him.
It began when Gaetz shared a screengrab of a woman he said worked for the Buttigieg campaign who had commented on Facebook saying “please, please let it be urine next time …”
Hey @PeteButtigieg – this is a reply from a member of your campaign inciting (rather gross) violence against me after someone previously threw a drink on me.— Matt Gaetz (@mattgaetz) June 30, 2019
Is this what your campaign stands for? pic.twitter.com/7u1wMaQDtj
Both Pollara’s Facebook and LinkedIn profiles show she works as a Florida Regional Investment Director for Buttigieg for America.
However, unlike the currently raging milkshake conflict between Portland antifa and writer Andy Ngo, this situation has a happy ending. Pollara called Gaetz to apologize, and Gaetz tweeted that he considered that “good enough.”
Samantha gave me a very nice call and apology. That is how reasonable people behave and it’s certainly good enough for me.— Matt Gaetz (@mattgaetz) July 1, 2019
