Hugo Calls on Kaine to Resign

Anita Kumar

Del. Timothy D. Hugo (R-Fairfax) called on Gov. Tim Kaine to resign after reading today about how he is spending one and half days of his week working for the Democratic National Committee.

Hugo said Kaine should not have accepted the job of DNC chairman in January and called on him to resign as governor if he wants to continue working for the national party. "Virginia deserves a full-time govenor,'' Hugo said.

Kaine said in an interview this week he typically spends one day a week traveling as his party's national chairman to attend fundraisers and policy events another half a day working at the DNC headquarters in Washington.

Kaine was asked by reporters this morning at an unrelated press conference about his travel schedule. He refused again to release a full schedule. "We always release public scheduling and we will continue to,'' he said. "We just don't notice private events and no previous governor has either."

Kaine will spend tomorrow in Minneapolis on DNC business. He will travel to Los Angeles Wednesday to attend the ESPY Awards, an annual sports awards ceremony created by ESPN, with a friend. He will then fly to Colorado for the DNC before spending two days in Biloxi, Miss. for a National Governor's Association meeting.

Did Tim Hugo have any problem with Jim Gilmore acting as RNC Chair and Governor in 2001? Was Gilmore not doing any work as RNC chair and focus only on being Governor? Maybe that was why he was forced out.

That's quite a claim from a Delegate who has a full time job as a Capitol Hill lobbyist.

Seriously? The Governor has done a fine job.
