Virginia Gov. (Clinton ‘friend’, and former head of the DNC) Terry McAuliffe under federal investigation for campaign contributions

Well, let’s hope justice (whatever it is one way or the other) is done in the Commonwealth of Virginia. My sweet home. Did we mention that Terry McAuliffe is the former head of the Democratic National Committee and a close friend of the Clintons? Did we mention that the Governor has a long history of questionable dealings to say the least, including cashing in big just before one of the biggest bankruptcies in corporate history? Did we mention that McAuliffe is originally from Syracuse, New York and that his dad, a Democratic Party boss, set him up as a very young man as head of a then failing bank in close proximity to Washington which many Dems decided to do business with?

Among the McAuliffe donations that drew the interest of the investigators was $120,000 from a Chinese businessman, Wang Wenliang, through his U.S. businesses. Wang was previously delegate to China’s National People’s Congress, the country’s ceremonial legislature…

…Wang also has been a donor to the Clinton foundation, pledging $2 million. He also has been a prolific donor to other causes, including to New York University, Harvard and environmental issues in Florida.

U.S. election law prohibits foreign nationals from donating to federal, state or local elections. Penalties for violations include fines and/or imprisonment.
But Wang holds U.S. permanent resident status, according to a spokeswoman, which would make him a U.S. person under election law and eligible to donate to McAuliffe’s campaign.
