In an overt attempt to exude dominance over the little people, the federal government has brought new charges down upon the woman who threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton. Bringing down the full force of the government, the woman now faces new, federal charges and has been ordered to remain imprisoned until her court date.
According to the most recent reports, Alison Michelle Ernst has been ordered by a “federal magistrate” to remain in custody until she returns to Las Vegas to face her new charges. Ernst was initially arrested on misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct after speaking with Secret Service agents.

That charge held a maximum sentence of six months but has since gone up with the additional charges. The court has since appointed attorney Maria Weidner to represent Ernst in her upcoming Las Vegas proceedings.
The Associated Press reports, “The federal misdemeanor charges accuse Ernst of bypassing security to enter the ballroom where Clinton was speaking and committing a violent act by throwing the shoe.” These new charges, in addition with the previous charges, hold a maximum sentence of up to two years behind bars and allows to government to release her with the added stipulation of surveillance through a supervised release.
Since being slapped with the new “to-prove-a-point” charges, Weidner has expressed for her client that the two are looking to resolve the matter as quickly and efficiently as possible.
