Posted on 02/09/2020 11:19:20 AM PST by Kaslin
On Saturday, six Trump campaign volunteers in Jacksonville, Florida were working to register voters. At approximately 2:45 p.m., a golden-colored van attempted intentionally ran through their booths with the intention of mauling volunteers. Thankfully, no one was injured.
After driving through the tent, knocking over tables and chairs, the man stopped, took a video and flipped the Republican volunteers off. The driver sped off but was later apprehended.
Police arrested 27-year-old Gregory William Loel Timm. He was "charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a person over 65 years old, criminal mischief and driving without a license," News Jax 4 reported.
Lt. Larry Gayle told News Jax 4 that police are monitoring social media to see if Timm's video will pop up.
We dont know if this is politically motivated, Gayle said. Weve got detectives coming out. Were following up on information and trying to determine if we can identify this person right now.

Multiple people condemned the attack as politically motivated, including Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, President Donald Trump, Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott and Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry.
These unprovoked, senseless attacks on @realDonaldTrump's supporters need to end. I want to echo the @DuvalGOP in saying: We will not be silenced by cowards, and these disgusting acts will only make us work harder to win November. https://t.co/GQ7OrbtSO2 Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) February 9, 2020
Law Enforcement has been notified. Be careful tough guys who you play with! https://t.co/1Pq0hOrzy2 Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2020
Thanking God that no one was injured in todays politically motivated attack against @DuvalGOP volunteers today. https://t.co/qKaJ8takNB Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) February 8, 2020
This appears to be a politically-motivated attack on hard-working volunteers in Duval County. Thankful that no one was hurt. @DuvalGOP will not be silenced or intimidated. They will redouble their efforts to support strong Republicans in NE Florida and around the state! https://t.co/F4Qi7hk7CR Rick Scott (@ScottforFlorida) February 8, 2020
Sadly, this happened. I spoke to the GOP chair. This is outrageous. The hate is toxic and dangerous. Thankfully no one was injured but certainly they are shaken after being targeted because they were registering voters. Ive spoken to the Sheriff & of course his team is on this https://t.co/dRENZi0Bxq Lenny Curry (@lennycurry) February 8, 2020
You could be sure that if the parties were swapped, the charge would have been attempted murder.
I see many charges left on the table...
When do we find out that this insane puke is a Bernie Bot?
Gotta be Bernie follower.
Insane from the top down.
The punk involved.
why is this political terrorism not a hate crime?
“attempted intentionally ran”
Agreed. They wouldn’t even ask why he’d done it...it would have been attempted murder and terrorism.
I live in Jax and we haven’t gotten much info about this guy yet. The sheriffs got him pretty fast, but since his plate number was clearly visible and he had a distinctive vehicle, that’s not a big challenge.
We have some young “wokies” here who are pretty ugly. We also have older folks from the NE, many of them retired teachers or social workers, who all believe themselves to be the reincarnation of Marx and Engels (or Stalin) and have Bernie or Warren signs in their yards. So this looney may be living in mom’s basement, and she’s cool with it.
He thought it was hailing and wanted to get the van under cover...
The word she does not want to say is Murder.
It wasnt an attempted mauling.
It was an attempted mass murder.
He has that psycho serial killer look about him, mama’s boy.
This guy (video below) wants to slash our throats. Dont bring a knife to a gun fight there hoss.
Charges of premeditated 1st degree murder with special circumstances seems like a better fit for his crimes of hate.
We dont know if this is politically motivated, Gayle said.
Lying sack of crap.
My bet he is a Bernie supporter or just a garden variety antifa anarchist.
The perp looks like he could be Adam Schiff’s son . . .
