Sen. Tim Kaine’s youngest son isn’t coping too well with his father’s Election Day loss. Last Saturday, Linwood Kaine was arrested on suspicion of second-degree riot following a pro-Trump rally in St. Paul, Minn.:
Police took Linwood Kaine, 24, into custody after he and a group disrupted a rally in support of President Trump at the Minnesota State Capitol. The group chanted and whistled during the pro-Trump event, setting off air horns and a smoke bomb at one point.
Kaine, or “Woody” as he is known by his peers, was released from Ramsey County jail on Tuesday morning. He was among five arrested on the riot charges. A sixth person was cited for disorderly conduct.
No one in the group was charged, though St. Paul City Attorney Samuel Clark told the Pioneer Press that they are considering filing misdemeanor charges against the five.
Kaine defended his son’s actions by saying that his three children “fully understand the responsibility to express [their political] concerns peacefully.”
On the contrary — evidence shows that Linwood doesn’t fully understand.
