Dem Congressman advocates lying about election date

[UPDATE: Representative Gerry Connolly's phone number is (202) 225-1492; Governor Tim Kaine's is (804) 786-2211. Feel free to politely ask them whether they really do support voter suppression efforts in the Commonwealth of Virginia. - Moe Lane]

The Democrats are always accusing Republicans of passing out fliers saying that the date of an election has moved. Of course, there is never any evidence linking these to Republicans, but that doesn’t stop the Democrats.

But here’s a Democrat, new Virginia Congressman Gerry Connelly, actually advocating telling Republicans the wrong date of the special election to fill his spot on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors:

Gerry Connelley is a Tim Kaine Democrat. Kaine, who started as DNC Chair today, endorsed Connelly in the Democratic primary for VA-11, and that is widely attributed in pushing Connelly over the top.

Is this how Virginia Democrats and the DNC run campaigns?
