  •  URGENT: Worse phone calls going out (4.00)
    I just answered the phone to a recording that went something like this: "I'm Tim Kaine and I want you to know where I stand on the issues. I'm a Christian and my faith is important to me. I oppose abortion, and I oppose gay marriage." [both of these points expanded; I can't recall the wording]. I realized as the call went on that there was something fishy about it--it reminded me of the flyer. So I wrote down the last words: "Paid for by Honest Leadership for Virginia PAC".

    I gather from a quick web search that this group has created anti-Kaine attack ads in the past.

    If anyone gets a phone call that starts out this way, please RECORD IT if possible, or transcribe as closely as possible. The main point would be whether they're actually impersonating Kaine; I can't recall for 100% sure.
