In the wake of former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen being convicted for bribery, the Democrats are trying to look as pure as the driven snow. The problem is, McAuliffe has had a life that should be a prime time series or a few movies on how to succeed as a corrupt politico. Even the liberals have no love of the man.

The liberal response to McAuliffe election

Mother Jones is one of those ultra-liberal news sites. Via a blog, is their reaction to McAuliffe being elected.

Allow me to explain. McAuliffe represents an unseemly slice of Washington. His primary role in politics for the past two decades or more has been raising money—most notably, for the Clintons. He cooked up the idea of essentially renting out the Lincoln bedroom during the Clinton administration as a fundraising vehicle, and he smashed all previous presidential fundraising records in the process. When McAuliffe was the Dems’ top fundraiser, a campaign finance scandal besieged the Clinton White House. Coincidence? No. McAuliffe was all about pushing the envelope when it came to the political money chase.

That alone might not be enough to render him a distasteful political candidate. What’s different about McAuliffe is his brazen mixing of his campaign fundraising activity and attempts to enrich himself personally. Many of McAuliffe’s business deals have come about due to his place in the political cosmos, not because he possesses a wealth of business skill. That tangled history has linked him to a long list of unsavory characters. 

How McAuliffe is trying to look clean

In an email, the Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring explains the new accountability board.

RICHMOND(September 25, 2014)–Attorney General Mark R. Herring issued the following statement regarding Governor McAuliffe’s creation of the Governor’s Commission on Integrity and Public Confidence in State Government:

“Virginians deserve to know that their elected officials are working in the best interest of the people, not themselves, and not special interests. This commission’s charge gets to the heart of the issue, which is restoring Virginians’ trust and confidence in their government after a dark period. That trust lies at the intersection of strong ethics laws, campaign finance rules, and redistricting reform, so I’m pleased to see this group intends to address these issues and more. This impressive group has strong, bipartisan credentials, and since their report will be ready in time for the legislative session, I hope their recommendations are given the attention and consideration they warrant.

“Governor McAuliffe has long been an advocate for the kind of reforms we need and he has already taken proactive steps to ensure integrity in government. By creating this task force and giving it a set of specific, defined issues to explore, he has taken yet another important and needed step forward.”

Virginia is becoming the land of hypocrisy. The biggest take away is that the Republicans allowed this by not helping the conservative Cuccinelli from the national level.
