TimKaine.com takes readers to Cuccinelli site


Tim Kaine. (Tracy A Woodward - WASHINGTON POST)
No, you didn’t mistype. And no, Tim Kaine is not Ken Cuccinelli’s alter-ego. The fact that www.timkaine.com redirects to www.cuccinelli.com is simply the latest in Web hijinks involving Kaine’s namesake Web site, reports The Post’s Rosalind Helderman on the Virginia Politics blog.

“If it drives more people to Ken’s site and angers liberal Democrats, I am in favor of it,” wrote the man responsible for the redirect, Matt Chancey, in an e-mail to Helderman.

Chancy, a self-described conservative Christian activist and “big fan” of the conservative Va. attorney general’s, has owned www.timkaine.com since 2001. Kaine, the current Democratic National Committee chairman, launched his first gubernatorial campaign on www.kaine2005.org/home.php. Hard not to wonder what his Web site will be if he runs for U.S. Senate in 2012 after all.
