Kaine on Death and Taxes

    Kaine a “moderate to conservative”? Who is this guy trying to kid? Kaine is as liberal as they come. Who other than a left-wing liberal would agree to represent a two-time murderer (Lem Tugle) for free, to try and keep him from getting the death penalty. Tugle was on trial for raping and killing a southwest Virginia grandmother. After killing her, he dumped her body down the same ditch where he dumped the 17-year-old girl he had previously been convicted of murdering. Tugle was on parole for this crime when he killed the grandmother.

    I understand that representing people is what attorneys do but even attorneys have some choice in whom they represent. The line of defense Kaine used was that Tugle had not really raped the grandmother because “forcable sodomy was not rape according to the law at the time.”
