An intern for Andrew Gillum, the Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate has been arrested and subsequently charged with battery after she threw chocolate milk on a group of College Republicans at Florida State Universities Tallahassee campus.
As reported by Fox News, The far-left student activist who had the profanity-laced meltdown, Shelby Shoup, is listed as an intern for the Andrew Gillum for Florida Governor Campaign on LinkedIn and is a member of FSU Students for Justice in Palestine. Gillum’s campaign did not return a Fox News request for comment.
Part of the on campus exchange with the College Republicans was caught on camera.
“You are supporting Nazis,” Shoup said in the video that was posted online. “Do you understand that?”
Another student fired back at the girl who was noticeably wearing a communist pin: “And you are supporting communism?”
She replied: “Yeah, I f***ing am.”
“Don’t pour your coffee on me,” he said.
But Shoup said, “F*** you. I will,” before she laced him with chocolate milk.

As She ran off, she kicked a DeSantis sign out of the ground.
The FSU College Republicans called it an “alarming display of the extremely charged political environment that has arisen in recent months and years.”
No person, regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum, should be targeted and assaulted because of their political beliefs. We are glad that no serious physical harm came to our Vice-Membership Chair and will always stand up for the basic rights and respect that every one of our members is endowed.
