If you’re a sitting governor and you want to serve as head of the Democratic National Committee, you really have to keep an eye on these kinds of details:
Republican Party of Virginia Chairman Pat Mullins today noted that Governor Tim Kaine has finally arranged for the Democratic National Committee to cover the expenses of his Virginia State Police security detail when he travels in his other job of chairman of the DNC. Kaine also invited Virginians who want to know where he is at any given moment to simply ask him. He can be reached at the main switchboard number at the Office of the Governor at (804) 786-2211.
“Kaine’s office announced that the DNC has agreed to reimburse the state for the expenses of his security detail when the team travels with him on DNC business,” reported the Richmond Times-Dispatch on Wednesday (“Kaine Defends DNC Trips,” June 24, 2009).
