This morning’s Alexandria, VA shooter has been identified as 66-year-old, never-Trumper and Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., according to law enforcement officials.  As we reported earlier this morning, Hodgkinson allegedly asked Rep. Jeff Duncan whether it was Republicans or Democrats on the practice field before opening fire.  We’ve covered all of the key developments throughout the morning here.

According to press reports, Hodgkinson apparently owns a home inspection business though his license expired in November 2016 and was not renewed.

Hodgkinson was charged in April 2006 with battery and aiding damage to a motor vehicle, according to online records in St. Clair County, Illinois. The charges were dismissed, records show.

According to The Week, restaurant owner Charles Orear knows Hodgkinson through work they did together in Iowa on Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.  Orear described Hodgkinson as “more on the really progressive side of things,” as well as being “a quiet guy” and “very mellow, very reserved.”

While police have refused to confirm whether the attack was politically motivated, Hodgkinson’s Facebook page seems to indicate he was a Bernie fan and didn’t particularly care for Donald Trump, to put it mildly.

“I want to say Mr. President, for being an ass hole you are Truly the Biggest Ass Hole We Have Ever Had in the Oval Office.”

Apparently Hodgkinson was convinced that Trump was guilty of treason even though we still haven’t seen any evidence of such allegations after 6 months of intensive investigations….

“Trump is Guilty & Should Go to Prison for Treason.”

Trump

… oh, and he thought he was “mean” as well.

“Trump is a Mean, Disgusting Person.”

He also publicly offered up his opinions on the Georgia special election that is still underway:

“Republican Bitch Wants People to Work for Slave Wages, when a Livable Wage is the Only Way to Go!  Vote Blue, It’s Right for You!”

So, where did Hodgkinson draw inspiration for his “progressive” political beliefs?  Well, according to a letter to the editor published in the Belleville News-Democrat in July 2012, Hodgkinson’s favorite TV show was MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddown Show.”

“One of my favorite TV shows is “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC.”

Meanwhile, after Virginia Governor, and 2020 hopeful, Terry McAuliffe used this morning’s tragedy to call for more gun controls we would note that it’s somewhat ironic that Hodgkinson hailed from the great state of Illinois which has perhaps the strictest gun laws in the entire country.
