HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) - Some Hampton Roads residents reported receiving a mysterious text message Monday morning.
It claimed Governor Tim Kaine supports a "radical new tax on all Americans."
"I was wondering how they got my number," Robbi Edwards said. "That's very dangerous that they can get ahold of more information and use it against you."
Kaine is now urging the Attorney General as well as the FCC to launch an investigation into the text messages.
His campaign released the following statement:
"The Kaine for Virginia campaign did not send these messages and does not know who did. Voters have every right to be concerned about this breach of privacy. It's one thing to subject people to millions of dollars of false TV ads. It's another thing to invade their privacy with misleading text messages to their personal cell numbers. This is beneath the standard Virginia expects from its public officials."
Kaine's campaign is encourages all who received the text to file a complaint with the FCC here .
