Betsy Woodruff of The Daily Beast has unearthed a 2002 article in which Hillary’s Vice Presidential running mate Tim Kaine said that cheating politicians should resign. The Richmond Times-Dispatch was reporting on a scandal that rocked Virginia when Kaine said:
“If the allegations are true, he should definitely resign,” Kaine said, adding he held the same view about President Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal.
“That is an intolerable way to treat women and it’s not something that the state should be dragged through.”
Of course, Kaine is now saying very nice things about both Bill and Hillary, and a Kaine spokeswoman is pushing back against this old news report, saying, “[Tim] believes this election is about Hillary Clinton’s vision to make historic investments to create good paying jobs, make college debt-free and build an economy that works for everyone, not re-litigating personal issues from the distant past.”
