Rep. Wilson: People 'Making Fun Of Members Of Congress' Online 'Should Be Prosecuted'


Fla. Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) clearly doesn't' want to be made fun of online.

While speaking outside the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children in Florida this week, Wilson claimed lawmakers are going to shut down and prosecute those who make fun of them on the internet.

Those people who are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace. And there's no need for anyone to think that is unacceptable. We’re gonna shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted.

Her full comments relating to the matter were posted by Ryan Saavedra on Twitter. 

Wilson also had comments about the facility she visited that day. She said the facility was run by "white men" and run for "profit and greed".
