Terry McAuliffe Gets Slammed After Peddling Fraud Claims

Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe raised eyebrows during a CNN interview on Sunday when he refused to acknowledge Republicans won the 2000 presidential election. McAuliffe’s odd remarks that Republicans stole the election come as Democrats have attacked some Republicans for not accepting the results of the 2020 election.

According to The Daily Wire:

CNN host Dana Bash played clips from remarks that McAuliffe made in the past where the former Virginia governor, who is running for a second, nonconsecutive term, claimed without evidence that Democrats “actually won the last presidential election” and that the Supreme Court “stole the last presidential election.”

When asked to respond to his comments, he said “the 2000 election went to the United States Supreme Court.”

“Going back to 2000, do you think Republicans stole that election?” Bash asked.

“I wish the United States Supreme Court had let them finish counting the votes,” McAuliffe answered.

This isn’t the first time the Democrat candidate was caught peddling fake news. The Washington Post fact-checker slammed McAuliffe’s recent attempt to disparage Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin’s business career. McAuliffe ran ads attacking Youngkin for taking over “predatory dental clinics” the main issue is that Youngin has nothing to do with such business deals and WaPo fact-checker Glenn Kessler called out the disturbing “flimflammery.”

Townhall reports:

Fact-checker Glenn Kessler highlights the voice-over claim from the ad’s narrator that “Small Smiles, a string of dental clinics preying on unsuspecting poor families. As a Wall Street executive, Glenn Youngkin took over this chain of dental clinics, increasing corporate profits through serious abuse and the performing of unnecessary procedures on children.”

Kessler didn’t hold back in attacking McAuliffe for deliberately trying to attack his challenger with ads riddle with falsehoods and outright lies.

On just about every level, this campaign ad is flat-out false. It claims that Youngkin “took over” the dental clinics. Not only was he not part of the original transaction, but Carlyle did not own or manage the clinics; it merely helped fund the deal with loans.

After the problems were exposed and the company failed to make good on its loans, in 2010 (before Youngkin became chief operating officer), the loans were renegotiated to give Carlyle a relatively small equity stake. Only at that point did Carlyle even have the right to name a board director. But the company still was mostly owned by Arcapita, the Bahrain investment firm. One might fault the terms of the Arcapita purchase for increasing pressure on company executives to maximize profits — but again, Youngkin had no role in the original deal. 

Given that the ad displays an image of the Senate report — which says that Arcapita owned the holding company of Small Smiles — there is no excuse for such flimflammery.

“I wish the United States Supreme Court had let them finish counting the votes,” McAuliffe answered.

How can we tell when to stop counting if we don’t know how many votes we need? The 2020 election was the most cleverly orchestrated scam on the American people.

There’s NO interest on the part of the Biden Department of Justice to get to the bottom of it.

What’s so strange about a Democrat making up stories and telling lies about their campaigns? They’ve perfected the art over the past 13 years, and as long as many Democrats BELIEVE them, it will continue. Yes, point out the lies and wild stories, but it seems to be a way of life for Democrats, just as it is forMarxist Russians, Chinese communists, and Muslims (who even have a word for it).

Was McAuliffe wearing black face when he made those comments, or was he in his KKK uniform?

If you can’t see through a guy like Terry McAuliffe or people like Bill and Hillary Clinton, well then you deserve the government you get. Virginians are so close to the swamp that it’s north end is polluted with the creatures that have become dependent on the government for their livelihoods. Congrats to VA for electing McAuliffe previously and to have elected the guy in there right now, you show the world all they need to know! You have a chance to right the ship every 4 years, or you can vote in the hack, choose wisely, but that would mean losing your public teet position.

How much money is George Soros pumping into this disastrous campaign? If Terry can’t win legally George will buy the seat for him. It’s time America woke up and banished this evil Hungarian out of our politics. Even his mother country, Hungary, had the brains to forbid him to screw around with their politics. Why are we so dumb. When it so obvious someone is meddling in politics and forcing illogical and illegal results it’s time to get their meddling butt out of politics. He holds dual citizenship with Hungary and America. Revoke his American citizenship.

It’s standard operating procedure for progressive socialist Democrats, such as Mr. McAuliffe, to lie about the fraud involved in the 2000 election while insisting there was no fraud committed in the 2020 election. He would like for us to believe that the Republicans committed fraud in 2000 causing the election dispute to end up in the Supreme Court, where the election was decided in favor of the Republicans. He says, “I wish the United States Supreme Court had let them finish counting the votes.” He evidently doesn’t remember what actually happened with the SCOTUS in 2000 or, more likely, he refuses to remember. Al Gore and the Democrats didn’t want all the votes in Florida to be recounted, they only wanted the votes in various heavily Democratic counties, i.e. Dade County, to be considered. The Supreme Court ruled that they couldn’t be that “selective” in the recount. If there was to be a recount, all the votes throughout the entire state would have to be included. The Democrats didn’t want a “full recount” because it would insure a win for Bush and might reveal the Democrat’s attempts to flood the ballot boxes with fraudulent ballots or deny the validity of the infamous “hanging chad” ballots–so, instead, they withdrew their petition. McAuliffe, like most progressive socialist Democrats, like to rewrite history to suit their agenda; but the facts don’t cease to exist just because he and his fellow liberals choose to ignore them. Virginia doesn’t need that kind of career politician holding the highest elected office in the state.

This guy is a total jerk! But he has always been a total jerk. The people of Virginia need to send him packing. Of course, that will require an honest election and I’m not sure we will see another honest election again in the U.S.

Classic Democrat tactic. They (and their media) used lies, innuendo and selective editing to attack President Trump during his campaign and his entire tenure as President. Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown made false claims in 2018 in his campaign ads in which he claimed his Republican opponent didn’t pay his taxes. He was fact checked by w-l-w-t channel five but pretty much ignored by the rest of the stations.
Anytime we read or hear salacious claims by any candidate, representative or political party we need to do our own independent research.
