Terry McAuliffe’s endorsement strategy: Peddle access to business lobbies

Taking a selfie.
Taking a selfie. Thinking about all the money he made on Global Crossing before the company went belly up.

I live in the Commonwealth of Virginia and I am very sorry to say that Mr. McAuliffe is currently leading the race for governor. The man is a crony capitalist. He works the public world to cash in in the private sector and he has done it his entire career, as we have documented. Not that anyone is free of blemish in this race.

But this guy. People are really, honest to goodness going to vote for Terry McAuliffe?

It appears so.*

And check out this threat levied by an ally of Terry McAuliffe at a politically important Northern Virginia business group which was considering endorsing  the Republican candidate. Classy.

“I urge you to stop any endorsement of Cuccinelli,” state Sen. Janet D. Howell (D-Fairfax), told PAC leaders Friday in an email. “The ramifications of his being endorsed will be huge within the Senate Democratic caucus. … The response [from legislators] will be frigid and doors will be closed [when the council seeks help with its legislative agenda]. Achieving the goals of NVTC will be difficult to impossible.”

*We do not and will not endorse anyone in the race for Virginia’s governorship, or any other race for that matter.
