Sens. Tim Kaine and Mark Warner reveal in their statements about the Supreme Court's decision on the 1965 Voting Rights Act that they are first democratic partisans rather than representatives of Virginians. Sen. Kaine said the decision "raises serious concerns," and Sen. Warner was "deeply disappointed" by the ruling.
These two former governors, who were responsible for executing Virginia voting laws, know that Virginia has fair elections and supports voting rights. Rather than providing assurances that the time is past due to end federal oversight of Virginia elections, or praising the people and laws of Virginia that assure fair elections and guarantee voting rights in our state, these two senators take the opportunity to echo liberal democratic group think by implying that the people of Virginia are inherently racist and will enact discriminatory voting laws unless shepherded by the federal government.
They told us that Virginia will not promote constitutional rights unless there is oversight by the federal government. If you think our senators put our state before their party, think again.
