Kaine to Mullins: No Travel Records For You

Amy Gardner

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine today declined to release his daily schedule since January, when he became chairman of the Democratic National Committee, despite a Freedom of Information Act request to do so from the Republican Party of Virginia.

Kaine spokeswoman Lynda Tran said, although the governor releases his public schedule every week, private meetings are exempt from disclosure as are records of his schedule that relate to is work for the DNC, which is not a public entity.

Pat Mullins, chairman of the state GOP, had also asked for all records relating to the cost to state taxpayers of the governor's out-of-state travel, but Tran said those records are not with the Governor's Office but with the Virginia State Police.

Kaine has come under increasing scrutiny in the press and from Republicans for his travels as DNC chairman, some of which has occurred on weekdays and taken him away from his daily duties as governor.

Kaine's obnoxious response to this reasonable request for basic information is, alas, in keeping with his conduct as Governor. It's a shame that Kaine has turned out to have such a taste for hyperpartisan, polarizing conduct.
