President Barack Obama will campaign for Terry McAuliffe this weekend...

Post  News Hawk on Tue Oct 29, 2013 8:34 am

President Barack Obama will campaign for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe this weekend, giving a late boost to McAuliffe as he seeks to energize core Democratic voters in an off-year governor’s race, Democratic sources told POLITICO.

Obama is set to appear at a Sunday afternoon get-out-the-vote rally in Northern Virginia. It will be the president’s first campaign appearance for McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

McAuliffe’s campaign has been working to activate many of the same voters who carried Virginia for Obama in 2008 and 2012: young people, independent women and African American, Latino and Asian American voters. Some of those groups – particularly young and nonwhite voters — tend to participate at lower rates in non-presidential elections."

With Obama's popularity running so low, does Terry McAuliffe really need to take this risk?

McAuliffe has 10-times the opponent's cash-money. Not surprising...

No

Gov. Scott Walker (R) to speak in support of Conservative Cuccinelli (R).

Why take that chance?

Of Terry McAuliffe's well-funded campaign:

“If you own a television, you know that,” Cuccinelli joked to supporters. “If you don’t, my opponent will buy you one if you’ll vote for him.”

Terry McAuliffe...interesting factoid...

Where McAuliffe gets his money...

No

"...In the late 1990s, some of McAuliffe’s business ventures came under investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor, which filed suit against two labor-union officials, both of them with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers pension fund, for entering into questionable business arrangements with McAuliffe.

Both officials later agreed to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in penalties for their actions, and the union itself had to reimburse its pension fund by nearly $5 million.

In one deal, McAuliffe and the fund officials created a partnership to buy a large block of commercial real estate in Florida. McAuliffe put up $100 for the purchase, while the pension fund put up $39 million. Yet McAuliffe got a 50-percent interest in the deal; he eventually walked away with $2.45 million from his original $100 investment. In another instance, the pension fund loaned McAuliffe more than $6 million for a real-estate development, only to find that McAuliffe was unable to make payments for nearly five years.


In the end, the pension fund lost some of its money, McAuliffe moved on to his next deal, and fund officials found themselves facing the Labor Department’s questions..."

Oh, but let's vote for the crook by all means. What do you bet he wins. Too bad people who vote didn't know more about who they were voting for. And in fairness to voters, you really do have to dig sometimes to find out what is going on. That is especially true in local politics.
