Kaine–Liberal on Violent Crime
Democrat Tim Kaine represented one of the most vicious rape-murderers in Virginia history. Kaine wasn’t required to represent rape-murderer David Tuggle, but he helped him free-of-charge.
Kaine’s client, David Tuggle, served time for strangling a 17 year-old girl to death. Four months after he was released, he killed another woman. Kaine’s client raped his victim in hideous ways and finally shot her through the chest with a .25 caliber pistol, and murdered her.
Kaine argued that this crime wasn’t “vile” under Virginia law. But Tuggle’s crimes were gruesomely vile–with details too explicit to describe.
There was no doubt of Tuggle’s guilt–he led police to the body. Kaine worked to prevent Tuggle’s execution. By defending this monster, Kaine enhanced his reputation with radical opponents of capital punishment.
It’s one thing when public defenders represent vicious criminals. But when a lawyer personally selects a monster for a client, it reveals a dark facet of his own inner character. Tim Kaine opposes the death penalty. He’s defended the most hideous criminals. Don’t expect him to change his ways.
Voters are wise to be skeptical of campaign promises. Past actions are the best predictor. Please forward this information to people who might be voting in the governor’s race.

Dick Black fancies himself the strongest Christian in all of the General Assembly, and has appointed himself the guardian of all Christiandom, as Del. Bob Marshall is the guardian of all heterosexualdom that is really and truly straight and really threatened by gays but not out of any sense of questioning sexuality but it did seem to move that one time but he’d been drinking a lot and it didn’t necessarily mean anything but still…
Over the years, I have learned not to be surprised that Black’s agenda is totally antithetical to Christian values. He believes that Lem Tuggle (not “David” Tuggle, as Black erroneously calls him) doesn’t have the constitutional right to representation, though makes Mr. JAG attempts no legal argument as to why this should be so. He also believes that the state has the right to take Tuggle’s life. Now, there are good arguments to be made in favor of the death penalty (I don’t buy any of them), but none of them can logically be favored by anybody who strives to emulate Christ.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. (Matthew 5:7)
Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: but I say unto you, that every one who is angry with his brother shall be in danger of the judgment. (Matthew 5:21-22)
Ye have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: but I say unto you, resist not him that is evil: but whosoever smiteth thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man would go to law with thee, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. And whosoever shall compel thee to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
Ye have heard that it was said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy: but I say unto you, love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you. (Matthew 5:38-44)
I guess Del. Black and I have different Bibles. His must not have all that Jesus stuff in it.
