    FOR RELEASE: On Receipt (December 7, 2011) CONTACT: Del Bob Marshall, (703) 853-4213 Kaine 'Is Very Confused' DEL. MARSHALL SAYS Tim Kaine Misrepresents HIS Personhood Bill 'We already have enough people in Washington who vote on bills without ever reading them.' Del. Bob Marshall tonight (Wednesday, Dec. 7) accused Tim Kaine, the Democrats' presumptive 2012 candidate for the U.S. Senate, of mounting a "skewed attack on my personhood bill" in tonight's early-bird Senate debate in Richmond. "After seeing Tim Kaine's skewed attack on my personhood bill (HB1), it is obvious he is very confused," Marshall (R., 13th District) said. "First...

  • email from Timmy Kaine, attacking George Allen and oil companies (BARF ALERT)

    05/13/2011 6:39:04 AM PDT · by Gopher Broke · 8 replies
    Right now, Congress is debating the best way to get our fiscal house in order and cut spending. A good first step would be to eliminate the money taxpayers spend on subsidies to major oil companies. We're going to have to make a lot of tough choices, but this one is easy. I strongly support putting an end to federal tax giveaways for big oil companies because they aren't necessary and they'll cost taxpayers over $21 billion over the next decade. Unfortunately, even as gas prices rise and oil profits grow even more, George Allen and Jamie Radtke prefer the...

    Former Virginia Govs. George Allen and Timothy Kaine are tied in the race for retiring Democratic Sen. James Webb’s seat. Both are polling at 46 percent among registered Virginia voters 18 months before the election, The Washington Post reported. The Democratic Kaine shows strength in the powerful and populated Northern Virginia, while the Republican Allen polls well in the rest of the state. Both must overcome negatives: Kaine for his close association with President Barack Obama’s policies as head of the Democratic National Committee and Allen for his “macaca” comment that derailed his 2006 Senate re-election bid , the Post...

Kaine, a popular former Governor, is facing off against former Governor and Senator Jim Allen. Allen, a Republican, had served both posts before being defeated in 2006.

After the two were separated, Gartland allegedly lunged at Kessler and bit him on the face. Kessler lost half of his left eyebrow in the incident.

    LONDON (Reuters) – British men are becoming increasingly interested in having their eyebrows professionally groomed, according to Debenhams department store which plans to hold men-only "guybrow" nights. Men, it said, now make up 40 percent of the visitors to its brow bars, double the proportion of a year ago. They are going for a treatment called "threading," an ancient method of hair removal which originated in India in which a thin twine of cotton thread is rolled over the offending area, plucking the hair from the follicle level.

    Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine will become chairman of the Democratic National Committee later this month, serving as the top political messenger for Barack Obama's administration even while he finishes his final year in the governor's mansion, several sources said. Kaine, who emerged as one of Obama's vice presidential finalists this summer, will operate from Richmond in a part-time capacity until January 2010, when he will become the full-time DNC chairman. Kaine is constitutionally barred from running for reelection. A personal friend of the president-elect, Kaine is a gregarious chief executive who is known to relish political combat and helped...

    Gov. Tim Kaine yesterday announced a plan to expand health care coverage to thousands of uninsured, low-income Virginians as the state faces a projected $641 million budget shortfall. "One in seven Virginians still lack health insurance because their employers don"t provide it or because they cannot afford it," Mr. Kaine said. "As more citizens rely on our health care safety net for their most basic health needs, we must strengthen that system." Mr. Kaine, a Democrat, said the two-year budget that he plans to present to the General Assembly on Monday will include about $25.5 million in new health care...

    RICHMOND, Nov. 12 -- Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine has cut off state funding for abstinence-only sex education programs, citing recent studies finding that teenagers should also be taught about birth control and condoms to protect against pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. Kaine (D) submitted plans last month to close a budget shortfall in part by eliminating a $275,000 matching grant for a federal program that provided funds for 14 nonprofit groups that taught abstinence only. Delacey Skinner, Kaine's communications director, said the governor believes that effective sex education programs must include information about contraceptives as well as abstinence. "The...

    I know what it's like to be an underdog. In the Summer of 2005, I saw one poll that had me losing the governor's race by 12 points. I believed we could win, and you believed in me. Before long, we were only down by 8 points. Then it was 6, then 2, then 1. On election day, we won a 6-point victory. We won in part because we worked hard every day and never lost sight of what we were fighting for: Virginia's future. But the bigger reason why we won was that you kept faith and supported us...

    RICHMOND, April 4 -- The Republican-controlled General Assembly faced off against Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) Wednesday, rejecting his proposal for a statewide ban on smoking in bars and restaurants and rebuffing his concerns about expanding the use of the death penalty. By wide margins, the House of Delegates and Senate overrode Kaine's veto of legislation to make the killers of judges and witnesses eligible for the death penalty. The House also voted to override Kaine's veto of a bill that would make accomplices eligible for capital punishment, but the Senate agreed with the governor, meaning the bill will...

    Gov. Tim (Eyebrow) Kaine was protested by a group of Roanoke-area taxpayers today, as he attended Raleigh Court Elementary School on his "easy listening" tour. He was apparently listening to school kids, rather than taxpayers and voters. The group took issue with Kaine's campaign promise to not raise taxes, a promise he immediately broke during his first year in office. Also, one member of the group sat in the Tim Kaine Rocking Chair. The group objects to the fact that Kaine has done nothing while the General Assembly hammered out a Transportation Plan. Kaine now plans radical changes to it...
