CONFIRMED: Tim Kaine's Son Was Arrested At Trump Protests In St Paul

UPDATE: This has been confirmed as Tim Kaine's son. Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, a St. Paul native, released a Tuesday night statement through a spokesperson to the Pioneer Press:

“We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues,” he said. “They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”


One of the six protesters arrested this past weekend at the Trump rally in St. Paul, Linwood Kaine, appears to be the son of former Vice Presidential candidate, Tim Kaine. 


The Ramsey County Attorney’s Office Monday declined to file charges against six counter-protesters arrested Saturday at a pro-Trump rally at the State Capitol.

Anton Bueckert was arrested on disorderly conduct charges. Jonathan Adams, Linwood Kaine, Glenn Kimball, Isabell Kimball and Haley Ryan were arrested on felony rioting charges.

And this pic from Tim Kaine's Twitter feed:

Kaine's son is consistently referred to as 'Woody' in all bios and media reports that we could find, but the Carleton alumni page lists him as 'Linwood' - so it appears he was named after his grandfather on his mother's side, former Republican Governor of Virginia, A. Linwood Holton Jr. 

It would appear that Linwood took his father's advice, when he called for 'violence in the streets' to #RESIST President Trump...

So, the way we get outside the bubble is we take advantage of this tremendous public outcry against the administration.What we've got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there's the momentum to be able to do this.

Makes you wonder if his family ties had anything to do with the decision to NOT file charges, even though "The arrests occurred after a man appeared to be hit in the face and pepper spray was sprayed into the crowd."
