UH OH: Are Liberals Aware Hillary’s VP Pick is a Fan of The REDSKINS?

Tim Kaine Redskins 2

Before serving as a Senator for Virginia, Hillary’s vice presidential pick Tim Kaine was the state’s governor and while serving in that office, Kaine accepted a variety of questionable expensive gifts.

One of those gifts was tickets to see the Washington Redskins and that’s a big problem for the left, which has been insisting for months that the team should change its name, claiming it’s racist.

Why would Kaine accept such tickets unless he’s a fan?

Jim Geraghty of National Review reported back in 2013:

Virginia’s Long Tradition of Expensive Gifts to Governors

There was McDonnell’s immediate predecessor, Tim Kaine, now one of the state’s two senators:

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine, a Democrat, accepted an $18,000 Caribbean vacation last year, putting him atop the list of Virginia elected officials who in 2005 accepted nearly $315,000 in gifts, trips, concert tickets and other gratuities from corporations, interest groups and wealthy persons.

The newly elected governor’s winter getaway on Mustique — a private island playground for rock stars and royalty — was paid for by Albemarle County investor James B. Murray Jr.

The VPAP site reveals that since 2001, Kaine received $186,899 in gifts and travel – Redskins tickets, cases of wine, etc.

So not only did Kaine accept questionable gifts while serving as governor, he took tickets to see a football team which has a name many Democrats think is racist.

Isn’t that a bit… problematic?
