On Monday, LBL reporter Bill Melugin appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” reporting that a self-described Antifa member has vandalized the Republican senator’s office and has received a light sentence.
Host Tucker Carlson has been criticized over recent news that Jacob Chancell, known as QUANAN SHAMAM, will receive a three-year prison sentence for entering the Capitol Building during the January 6 capital riot. On the contrary, he noted that left-wing criminals tend to get softer.

“If you’re looking for another example of unevenly applied justice, here’s one: Canon Shaman, who smiled around the Capitol building on January 6, received just three years in prison. Hitting the ax went particularly easy on the vandal, ”Carlson said.
In December 2020, North Dakota Sen. Melugin reports on Alexander Starks, a self-proclaimed Antifa member who rushed to John Howen’s office with an ax. The incident is captured on tape, showing an ax waving at Starks’ office window and door. While Starks pleaded guilty to the destruction of government property, the FBI treated Starks more mildly than Chancellor.
“Although federal sentencing guidelines suggest perhaps ten to sixteen months in prison, Starks was only sentenced to probation and about $ 2,800 in penalties. Now the kicker is: The FBI has returned the ax to Starks. “Melugin reported.
“According to the Post Millennial, Starks posted on social media that he was a member of Antifa and he would always attack fascists.”
Melguin also referred to constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley Similar comments Friday condemns this federal decision.
“Putting a light sentence aside and returning the ax is more interesting. It seems to be a tool of crime and can be declared lost in any appeal. Instead, it is returned by the judge as a form of political expression.”
Turley noted that Starks got support from the GoFundMe account North Dakota Democrat Who pledged his protection.
