Fake "Democrat" Voter Guide in VA

I just received "2005 Official Democrat and Progressive Voter Guide-Governor of Virginia" in my mailbox. Its purpose was to inform voters on "the issues most important to Democrat and Progressive voters." In tiny type, next to the picture of Tim Kaine it said "Paid for and authorized by Virginians for Jerry Kilgore."
Not surprisingly, the message was to vote for Russell Potts.
The contact numbers listed were wrong, both for Mr. Potts and Tim Kaine.
A new low in Virginia politics.
UPDATE (Scott): User mlk at Daily Kos posted a diary with scans of the offending materials. Here's the front and a zoom of the 'Paid for...' text.
