FRAUD: "Fixed-income senior" in Kaine ad actually an active millionaire slip-and-fall lawyer

Paul Bedard uncovers the latest Democrat attempt to defraud voters:

In the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee ad blanketing Virginia, Edwin Williams is portrayed as a home-bound retiree on fixed income. "I count on Social Security and and I don't want Washington politicians like George Allen privatizing it"...

But it turns out Edwin doesn't actually count on Social Security

Williams helped start the boutique law firm, Kellogg, Williams and Lyons in 1972. He has led the firm's Vienna branch for years. Calls to the firm's Washington office were referred to Williams in Vienna. His partner, Philip Kellogg, also did not return a call or email.

Williams, a partner in one of D.C.'s most notable law firms, has run their Vienna office since 1977. 

In fact, Williams was Jack Kent Cooke's divorce lawyer.

The home address shown in the ad isn't exactly something someone who "counts on Social Security" would be living in, Bedard notes.

His home is assessed at over $987,000.  

Rather than the poor, impoverished, doddering old man Democrats claim in the ad, Williams specializes in personal injury cases and brags he has "recovered millions of dollars for civil plaintiffs."

Virginia Democrats flat-out lied to voters.
