Months later, the radical Left still refuses to accept the outcome of the November election. And now, even a family member of Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, has been accused of joining in the violence.
Linwood Michael Kaine was arrested Saturday on suspicion of second-degree riot. The 24-year-old was arrested along with four others while protesting a President Donald Trump rally in St. Paul, Minn. Kaine and the other protestors attempted to disrupt the gathering with fireworks, air horns, whistles, chants and a smoke bomb.
According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, it took three police officers and pepper spray to subdue the senator’s youngest son. While being apprehended, Kaine “squared off with the officer,” St. Paul police spokesman Scott Linders told the newspaper.
On Tuesday, the senator released a statement that seemed to support his son's actions. "We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues,” said Sen. Kaine and his wife, Anne Holton. “They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”
