From the Kaine campaign (update: if you want to contribute and help the Kaine campaign fight back against this GARBAGE, see Mike Henry's email on the “flip!”).
It looks like, after more than $11 million in false, negative advertising didn't work, outside groups are now pulling dirty tricks. This isn't just a sleazy campaign tactic. It's a crime. The FCC has ruled that sending unsolicited text messages like this one is against the law.
Not to mention the message is just not true! The message claims that Tim Kaine supports a “radical new tax on all Americans.” Politifact VA ruled a similar charge by George Allen FALSE earlier today.
Anonymous attacks against Tim aren't new — but invading voters' privacy like this goes way too far.
Our campaign doesn't even have a text message program! We're focused on reaching out to Virginians to spread Tim's message one door knock, one phone call, and one conversation at a time.
If you received this unsolicited text message and would like to file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission, you can do so here:
