Hillary Clinton’s VP running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine once said that her husband, serial woman abuser and Democrat hero Bill Clinton, should have resigned over the scandal in which he had sex with an intern in the White House, Monica Lewinsky, and then lied about it under oath in a sexual harassment case against him.
As originally reported by the Richmond Times-Dispatch in 2002, a quote uncovered by The Daily Beast this week, Kaine, who was the Virginia Lt. Governor at the time, was being interviewed about what should happen to a Republican speaker of the house in the Virginia House of Delegates who was also being accused of a sex scandal.
On June 8, 2002, the Times-Dispatch wrote, according to The Beast:
“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.
On the same day, The Washington Post reiterated Tim Kaine’s position that Bill Clinton should have resigned:
Lt. Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D), who may face [state Attorney General Jerry] Kilgore in the 2005 governor’s race, likened the matter to the sexual scandal of President Bill Clinton and White House intern Monica S. Lewinsky, saying, “If the allegations are true, he ought to resign.”
“Somebody in public life shouldn’t behave that way toward women,” Kaine said. “It’s tawdry. It’s not the leadership that Virginia should have.”
But Bill Clinton, of course, did not resign after multiple accusations of not just tawdry affairs, but of unwanted sexual advances (Paula Jones, a case settled for $850,000) and even accusations of rape (Juanita Broaddrick).
And of course, in order to stay in political power, Hillary Clinton not only enabled her husband’s personal “War on Women,” but orchestrated the “Nuts and Sluts” campaign to destroy the characters of Bill’s accusers, who were smeared as being crazy opportunistic groupie wannabes by Hillary and the Clinton Machine.
