Sometimes. as in this case with Tim Kaine, the actual truth gets blurted out. When quizzed about the Weinstein money that the Clinton campaign received, he delivered his version of “What difference at this point does it make?” I guess he could have said what money. What is really telling here is the attitude. There is nothing to see here so just move along. Watch the video and see what you think.
As Written By Guy Benson for Townhall:
At long last, and under mounting pressure, Hillary Clinton released a terse statement yesterday (through a spokesperson, bravely) condemning serial sexual harasser Harvey Weinstein, from whom she’s accepted substantial political contributions over the years.

KAINE: It’s over. Yeah, it’s over.
Another glaring mistake. The Republican Party, whose chairwoman has been performing intellectual gymnastics to wriggle out of inevitable Trump comparisons, is highlighting the fact that Clinton’s campaign entity still has nearly $1 million in its ‘cash on hand’ coffers. Weinstein helped bundle six figures for Hillary Clinton last year. Is she prepared to relinquish that contaminated money? And will Ronan Farrow’s harrowing expose in The New Yorker (to which we alluded last evening) make this story even less tenable for people who are trying to duck the controversy by waiting it out? Farrow has called out Hollywood’s silence over the sexual allegations against his father, Woody Allen, and now he’s blown the lid off of even more disturbing accusations about …….
