  • Just when McAuliffe thought he was out, he's pulled back in

    Michael Corleone’s words in the make-believe New York mob story “The Godfather: Part III” could’ve been Terry McAuliffe’s in real-life Virginia political drama “Governor II”: “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.” In his first campaign for governor in 2009 — he was badly defeated in a three-way Democratic primary — McAuliffe had to answer for his image as a Bill-and-Hillary confidant who amassed a fortune at the intersection of campaigns and commerce. There were eyebrow-raising investments: a shaky bank in Washington; an insider deal for shares in a telecom that went spectacularly bust; financing...

She will tell you that she always cooperates with law enforcement, that she has attempted to turn over all materials to relevant authorities, that it's just one giant coincidence her friends and family are constantly being swept up in prosecutorial dragnets. It isn't a coincidence.Just look at the people with whom Clinton surrounds herself. <><> Her husband, ex-President Bill Clinton, is a serial philanderer, a perjurer, a sexual...

The unprecedented move, expected to be announced at an 11 a.m. news conference on Capitol Square, marks a dramatic expansion of policy in restoring the right to vote, to sit on a jury, to serve in elected office or become a notary.

Alejandro Mayorkas, who was elevated from head of the department’s legal immigration agency to be deputy secretary while the investigation was ongoing, also angered many of his colleagues by getting involved in the cases, and “created an appearance of favoritism and special access” for the wealthy immigrants, the inspector general concluded.

    The House of Delegates sustained five budget vetoes of Gov. Terry McAuliffe, while refusing to consider vetoes related to funding for expansion of Medicaid and filling of judgeships as constitutionally invalid. The House overrode one gubernatorial veto on a 70-27 vote, preventing McAuliffe from stripping funding for a new advisory council on conflicts of interest and ethics. House Speaker William J. Howell, R-Stafford, ruled that McAuliffe could not veto amendments made to the budget on June 12 that stripped sum-sufficient funding for Medicaid expansion and inserted new language that requires the General Assembly to approve any appropriation of federal funding...

McAuliffe also said he will veto sections of the state budget, including language meant to block expansion by fiat. His administration is looking at a number of options - which the governor did not detail - and expects to have a formal plan by September. The move leads Virginia into complex legal ground on arguably the most divisive political issue in the state. The governor said he'll allow most the spending plan to become...

    RICHMOND — Virginia Gov.

    In his campaign for governor last fall, Terry McAuliffe adopted the straightforward slogan "Putting Jobs First" to convey to Virginia voters that, if elected, he would make the commonwealth's economy his first priority. Mr. McAuliffe's surrogates similarly touted the former Democratic moneyman's fiscal focus. Former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine endorsed Mr. McAuliffe because, he said, "We want somebody who wakes up thinking about jobs, thinking about the economy, thinking about finding a great deal, thinking about training the workforce." "I know what Terry's priority is," Mr. Kaine continued. "It's economic opportunity for Virginia." Read more: Follow us: @washtimes on...

Meanwhile Republican Ken Cuccinelli is the nation’s most prominent state official opposing the massive law. He led state attorney generals in their anti-Obamacare lawsuits. There is also a Libertarian candidate in the race. But if he proves a spoiler, count on Democrats nationally to hold ranks.

    The Tulsa World. ^ | 11/6/2004 | By JIM MYERS
    By JIM MYERS World Washington Bureau 11/6/2004 WASHINGTON -- Democrat Brad Carson's message could not overcome the Republican wave in Oklahoma to help him become the state's next U.S. senator, but some party leaders think that message still could help Democrats nationally. Jay Parmley, the chairman of the Oklahoma Democratic Party, said he has been contacted by party leaders in other states, suggesting Carson as a successor to Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe. Carson, they believe, could help the party talk to voters in the so-called red states like Oklahoma that voted overwhelmingly for President Bush. "McAuliffe has done...

    Fox News' "Special Debate Coverage," 10/13/04 FOX NEWS’ SEAN HANNITY: “Why don't you condemn Dennis Kucinich when he says the President’s targeting civilians for assassination? We’re at war and your party has politicized the war, and your party has said false things about the President. Your party has called the President a liar every day. And I think as a leader you ought to say, if you want to change the tone of Washington it's going to start with me.”  DNC CHAIR TERRY MCAULIFFE: “No, no. Let's change George Bush and get this country moving in the right direction.”  HANNITY:...

    Terry McAuliffe was kind enough to send me the list of on-line polls to Freep after the debate tonight in the email below. Make sure you hit them all! Dear Scott Mahrle, We need your help one last time. So far the debates have been two clear wins for John Kerry. And your actions after the debate have been absolutely crucial in keeping the Republican spin machine in check. Tonight is the final debate between John Kerry and George W. Bush, the one where the post-debate spin will solidify and last until Election Day. If you have not taken action...

    [09/23 03:16 PM] Man, those guys at the RNC are a regular Bloodhound Gang or Mod Squad. Take a look at this little observation: 9 HOURS BEFORE THE CBS REPORT: "Democratic Party chairman Terry McAuliffe said, 'George W. Bush's cover story on his National Guard service is rapidly unraveling. ... George W. Bush needs to answer why he regularly misled the American people about his time in the Guard and who applied political pressure on his behalf to have his performance reviews 'sugarcoated.'" (Terence Hunt, "Questions Raised About Bush Guard Service," The Associated Press, 9/9/04) (I checked with the RNC...

    Something to Yak About – Mr. McAuliffe, Have You No Shame?Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe has a well-earned reputation for slash and burn, scorched-earth politics, but has he sunk to unprecedented lows? McAuliffe has once again actively taken to attacking the president’s military service and his honorable discharge. All this forces us to ask one question of Terry McAuliffe: Sir, have you no shame? The answer seems apparent. Slime Time Live That’s not our title, that’s what Newsweek Magazine has titled the latest piece by Howard Fineman and Michael Isikoff.
