On Friday evening, Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, was hit with some brutal news.
His youngest son, Linwood, was charged with a gross misdemeanor for obstructing the legal process and several other misdemeanors for masking his identity in public, along with fleeing the police on foot.
This all took place after he participated in the violent anti-Trump protests on March 4.
Fox News reports:
A criminal complaint says Kaine and others changed into black clothing during the March 4 rally and entered the state Capitol. One group member threw a smoke bomb inside. The complaint says the 24-year-old Kaine was among those who ran away, and he initially resisted arrest.
Two of Kaine’s seven alleged accomplices, 29-year-old Francis Sagermerek of St. Paul and 26-year-old Anton William Bueckert of Ontario, Canada, were charged with felonies.
Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, was Hillary Clinton’s running mate in last year’s presidential election.
“Today’s announcement of misdemeanor charges against Senator Kaine’s son contains no suggestion that he engaged in disruptive behavior while at the rally, but are instead focused on his actions as he was arrested after he left,” a spokesperson for Kaine said Friday. “Tim and Anne support their son and hope the matter is resolved soon.”
