Because I would happily vote against Terry McAuliffe for purely irrational reasons, it is comforting to learn of practical scandals that discredit him. I can then hide my magical thinking beneath a veneer of justifiable moral outrage. This story about the campaign finance complaint filed against McAuliffe last Friday is something of a boon in this regard.
McAuliffe allegedly received a donation of $350,000 from a foreign agent, which is illegal in the U.S.A. Better, the agent is otherwise under investigation for international money laundering.
The story reminds of McAuliffe’s GreenTech car manufacturing scam, which bilked Chinese investors for tens of millions of dollars before the venture went bankrupt.
