Five thousand folks wrote in to the DNC’s Tim Kaine asking how Democrats are going to deal with LGBT issues. He “answered” some of them, which for a high ranking official whose job it is to maintain the party line means he gave vague talking point-y answers.
Yes, this is the same Democrat who, while governor of Virginia, signed into law a bill defining marriage as between one man and one woman. Tim doesn’t even support civil unions, telling the AP in 2001, “I have never said I supported gay civil unions, gay marriages. I do believe that people shouldn’t be kicked out of their jobs or discriminated against because of who they are.” (But he does want gay and lesbians protected in the workplace … somehow … with “civil benefits”.)
As we wrote in January 2009: “Tim Kaine is polite and nice to gays, but lacks the political fortitude to stand-up to anti-gay measures; he really is the perfect person to run the DNC.”
