Those who care about voting integrity will want to consider how Tim Kaine’s administration participated in denying military votes in 2008. To this day, he has never acknowledged or apologized for his role. Meanwhile on the campaign trail, he pretends to be the military’s friend. Back when our historically destructive President was being elected, Tim Kaine clearly wanted every Richmond city vote counted, but obviously not every military vote.
The Virginia State Board of Elections (SBE) is responsible for ensuring the citizens’ right to vote and ensuring statewide compliance and uniformity. Tim Kaine appointed Jean Cunningham to be the SBE Chair. She is a fellow Richmond lawyer, Leftist partisan and civil rights activist.
During 2008 election, the McCain-Palin 2008 Campaign sued Kaine’s administration. The pre-Eric Holder Department of Justice also weighed in and charged 16 Virginia electoral boards with violating overseas military personnel the right to vote. The districts include the cities of Richmond, Colonial Heights, Williamsburg, and Caroline County.
The case was heard by U.S. District Judge Richard Williams who ruled that the state of Virginia had violated the voting rights of military personnel and overseas citizens last year by failing to mail absentee ballots in time for them to be counted on Election Day.
Unbelievably, Kaine’s administration argued that they had no obligation to send ballots to military personnel deployed overseas until the day before the election.
His administration then proceeded to ignore Judge Williams’s order.
Then in October, Judge Williams ordered Virginia a second time to count the votes and gave them 30 days to comply.
As a result of this episode, we know that Kaine:
- Selected a radical activist to the run the Virginia State Board of Elections.
- Approved his administration rationalization in Federal Court that they had no obligation to get overseas military ballots out early.
- That his administration was found guilty.
- That his administration ignored the order and the Judge Williams had to order them to count the votes a second time.
- Meanwhile, Kaine did back flips to make sure that Democrat-rich Richmond had more than enough voting resources while denying votes in those same districts.
The bottom line is that Tim Kaine violated the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Article X of the Virginia Constitution, and Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act.
You see, Kaine is a slick talking Leftist ideologue that is cut from the same mold as Barack Obama. And if we needed Congress to investigate situations like Benghazi, Tim Kaine would be right there with his ex-DNC Chairman hat on running interference for Democrats and again throwing the military under the bus.
