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.
...and libertarians are willing to put him in office by siphoning votes from Cuccinelli
Yup. If that "Libertarian" wasn't in the race, I would be far more confident of a Cuccinelli win.
I really think this is the democRATs' new strategy in a lot of these races: Throw in some 3rd party guy to siphon votes from the Republican. It's been working like a charm for several election cycles now...
When will the GOP get smart and start putting up "Green" candidates??
Are the “likely voters” of VA aware of all this?
