"Will Democrats demand he step down?" one person wondered.

Well, sorry to disappoint, but that audio is not Tim Kaine. It is the well-covered 2007 voicemail from Alec Baldwin where he called his daughter Ireland a "pig."

Kaine does have a daughter, Annella, but she is not 11.

Thus, it is not "ala Alec Baldwin," but, in fact, a hoax.
