Alleged axman accused of vandalizing GOP senator's Fargo office spouted left-wing views, charges say

FARGO — A Lisbon, N.D., man accused of taking an ax to a Republican U.S. senator’s office windows in Fargo last week was "very vocal" about his left-leaning political views, according to court records.

Thomas Alexander Starks, 30, is under federal criminal investigation for allegedly smashing two glass windows and an intercom system next to the door of Sen. John Hoeven’s office, U.S. Attorney Drew Wrigley told The Forum on Tuesday, Dec. 29. The federal prosecutor for North Dakota declined to say what federal charges Starks could face, if any.

Wrigley said his office plans to “aggressively investigate” the incident “to its logical conclusion,” and is working to determine the motivation for the vandalism.

Starks has been charged in Cass County with a Class C felony of criminal mischief in connection to the Dec. 21 incident at 123 Broadway N. Video shows a man wearing a black mask, dark sweater and jeans walk up a set of stairs to Hoeven’s door around 9 a.m. at Suite 201, according to an incident report. He rang the intercom but walked away after several seconds, the court document said.

3. Lemmie get this straight, he's under federal investigation for vandalism?

 

Given the number of assorted misanthropes in North Dakota, you'd think they'd have handed this to local authorities. Gee, broke two windows and an intercom. Must be a conspiracy! Send in the army! Overreact much? Oh, right, it's North Dakota.

Does anyone know whether this guy is really a lefty, or just another nazi/pillow boize plant?
