The truth speaks well of Kaine

It is still early summer and already Virginia airwaves are blanketed with false, negative campaign advertising against Tim Kaine, Democratic nominee to replace U.S.Sen. Jim Webb.

The attacks come from Americans for Prosperity, funded by the wealthy Koch brothers, which recently sponsored a road show through Virginia spreading falsehoods such as saying that as governor, Kaine left office with a budget deficit. This is, of course, false. As Virginians know, our constitution requires a balanced budget, unlike the federal system, so Kaine never signed a budget with a deficit.

In fact, The Associated Press reported, Kaine "never finished a fiscal year with insufficient funds."
