I came home tonight to find several messages waiting for me. This isn’t really a surprise being the day before the election. What was a surprise was one of them claiming that Democratic candidate for governor, Tim Kaine was against gay marriage, against a woman’s right to choose and that I should support Independent candidate Russ Potts for governor.
It claimed to be paid for by the Honest Leadership for Virginia PAC. I was curious, so I did a web search on this PAC and found that it’s a political action committee formed to elect conservative Republicans in Virginia. In fact, it’s given over two million dollars to the Kilgore campaign! So, what they are trying to do is to draw votes away from Kaine to Potts. They know that Potts doesn’t have a real chance to be elected and hope that if they can siphon off some votes from Kaine to Potts they can get Kilgore elected.
If this is an example of honest leadership then I think the Kilgore campaign and its supporters need to start actually funding education in Virginia because they need some remedial lessons in the word “honesty.”
