Senator Tim Kaine may be on the Team Clinton now, but he once said that Bill Clinton should resign after his Whit House affair with Monica Lewinsky. A rapport first published by Daily Beast Wednesday said the Democratic vice presidential nominee was responding to a separate scandal involving then-Virginia state congressman Vance Wilkins, when he reflected on Clinton's affair, Fox News rapports.

Kain called for Wilkins to resign and told the Richmond Times-Dispatch in 2002 that he still maintained that Clinton should have stap down in 1998 amid the Lewinsky controversy. "My reaction was the same I had when I read about the Clinton-Lewinsky affair: this is not appropriate conduct. It's beneath the dignity of the office", the Virginia senator told the Associated Press in separate interview.
