Florida ‘Tea Party terrorist’ Ruba Khandaqji arrested for threatening to kill Gov Rick Scott

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement reports the arrest of a Florida woman, described as a “Tea Party terrorist,” for threatening to kill Gov. Rick Scott.

Ruba Khandaqji, a 36-year-old pharmacist, was charged with two counts of threatening a public official and resisting arrest without violence.

Khandaqji’s arrest warant refers to a history of mental instability, noting at least four incidents in the last month.

She called the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office and said she was going to hire a hit man to kill the Governor because she wanted to be deported to Jordan, FDLE said in a statement.

During the 911 call released by the Sheriff’s Office Thursday, Khandaqji described Scott as “your trash governor” and asked that she pass on a message: “Tell him she is going to hire a hit man.”

FDLE agents spoke to Khandaqji at her home in downtown Celebration and she told them that she did not have to abide by U.S. laws because she was being held against her will by the government – wanting to be deported to Jordan.

She told deputies she planned to kill Scott and that’s when officials arrested her.

FDLE claim Khandaqji posted “alarming comments” on a state website – FLGOV.com. In a February email addressed to Scott, she described him as a “Tea Party terrorist.”

“I SUGGESTS THAT YOU KEEP FLORIDA SAFE … SO YOU SHOULD START A DEPORATION PROCEDURE FOR ME TO MY HOMELAND TONIGHT. GOT IT(?).”

The agency was then notified by U.S. Capitol Police on March 5 that she was in Washington, D.C., “where she was attempting to meet with members of the Department of State to demand her deportation,” according to her arrest warrant.

She was being held on $5,000 bail at the Osceola County Jail.

A call to the FLDE was unreturned regarding the link from the Tea Party to the woman and how the “Tea Party terrorist” label is applicable in this situation, especially since some Tea Party supporters back Scott’s campaigns.
