"Yes, it's true, My ethics fit neatly between my fingernails..."
Since 1947, for example, the commonwealth has protected Virginians from forced membership in a union, however cleverly forced unionism is portrayed, with a tough right-to-work law that protects everyones right to hold a job without having to share a paycheck with strangers. Virginias stance on right-to-work is rooted in the principle expressed by Thomas Jefferson: To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
Mr. McAuliffe has collected $1.5 million for his campaign from unions, much of it deducted from union paychecks around the country, and in exchange, the unions will reasonably expect a return for their money. Union bosses do not like right-to-work. They hate it. In return for their support, as Mr. McAuliffe knows, the union bosses want their man in Richmond to do what he can to overturn or water down the right-to-work law, and what he can is expected to be a lot. This puts the astute Mr. McAuliffe in a bit of a pickle, no doubt a sour dill.

Apparently McAwful plans to dodge debating Cuccinelli through the campaign. I hope Cooch makes a huge deal of that.
There was an earlier McAuliffe with a dilemma:
“The Germans have me surrounded & they’re demanding my surrender. What do I tell them?”
“Hell, I’ll tell them `NUTS!’ Dilemma solved!”
Sure hope there is no relation between the General and this creep.
Cuccinelli is dodging McAwful. He hasn’t challenged that liar’s ad about how McAwful helped the present governor pass a transportation bill. Even the top Dims in the legislature said on record that he didn’t do anything, but Cuccinelli hasn’t said a word about it. All he’s been doing is telling us what a great family he has. He’ll never win until he starts telling people what a scumbag McAwful is, stealing taxpayers’ money for a fake electric car, plus all he did for the Clinton’s.
