While the mainstream media are consumed with Democrat vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine’s horrible performance in Tuesday night’s debates, one subject in Kaine’s past is getting little news coverage, and it’s proving that “birds of a feather flock together.”
Donald Trump posted a damning infographic to Facebook Tuesday night that exposes an apparent pay-to-play scheme that Kaine had in place while governor and lieutenant governor of Virginia. Like his running mate, Hillary Clinton, it appears he gleaned wealth from his position while in office. Ironically, his successor was wrongly accused of what Kaine actually did.
These loose political ethics shared by Clinton and Kaine expose a deeper weakness. They prove that both are vulnerable to nefarious influences while charged with governmental responsibility.
In light of a recent hacktivist release by Guccifer 2.0 proving high-ranking Democrats received kickbacks from banks that received TARP bailout funds, this unethical cancer seems to be endemic to the Democrat Party.
The infographic points out several financial indiscretions that, if pursued legally, could be fashioned into transgressions of the law. Receiving personal “gifts” while in public office is not only unethical, but it’s also criminal.
Former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were convicted – and subsequently cleared – of illegally accepting gifts, luxury vacations, and large loans from a wealthy Richmond, Virginia businessman. This is exactly what Kaine did without retribution.
Kaine was gifted extremely hard to get tickets to the Final Four college basketball tournament. In reality, these tickets are almost impossible to purchase unless you are a student or an alumni of the teams in the contests.
Kaine was also gifted luxury vacations to both the Caribbean and the West Indies. The price tag for the Caribbean vacation was tallied at $18,000. Think about that for a moment. What kind of decadence would cost $18,000?
Kaine also received over $5,500 worth of clothing as gifts. These items are undoubtedly personal gifts and qualify as illegal. In addition, Kaine illegally accepted donated travel expenses to and from political events that would have had to have been compensated and reported as official travel donations.
In total, Kaine accepted $160,000 worth of illegal contributions and personal gifts while in the service of the people of the state of Virginia. Curiously, no one has sought to confront “Mr. Interrupter” about his illegal activity.
Of course, being a progressive Democrat, the Loretta Lynch Justice Department wouldn’t even consider opening an investigation into Kaine’s illegal activity. In fact, I think FBI Director James Comey is about to take the podium to announce he won’t be pursuing an indictment…
