Tim Kaine Raises Eyebrows With Glaringly Obvious Lie

Man, when you get nailed like the Clintons are right now — and Tim Kaine is, by proxy — the easiest defense is to just lie, lie, and lie some more. Here’s Kaine insisting that the Clinton Foundation already stopped taking foreign donations, even though the question repeats the truth – announcing a future ban on foreign donation is like announcing “last call” at the open bar at a wedding: 

No. False. Not true. Check out the Clinton Foundation’s web site:

If she is elected, we will immediately implement the following changes:  The Foundation will accept contributions only from U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and U.S.-based independent foundations, whose names we will continue to make public on a quarterly basis.  And we will change the official name from the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation to the Clinton Foundation.

Right now, the Clinton Foundation is still accepting foreign donations. And Tim Kaine is either oblivious to that fact, in denial, or just really comfortable lying about it.
