Last month, it was learned that Jeremy Joseph Christian, the 35 year old man that killed two men in an anti-Islamic attack in Portland, was a Bernie Sanders fan.
Earlier today, 66 year old James T. Hodgkinson shot 5 at the Republican Congressional Baseball Practice, including majority whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA). A quick search of Hodgkinson’s Facebook page shows that he was a very vocal politico, and like Jeremy Christian, was another fan of Bernie Sanders.
Here are some screencaps from Hodgkinson’s Facebook page.
UPDATE: Shortly after publishing this article, the Vermont Senator strongly condemned the shooter’s actions.
Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms. pic.twitter.com/hyfmmpgXML
