The entire Democratic Party is morally and ethically bankrupt, as evidenced by the underhanded, sneaky and outright illegal manner in which it operates – for no other reason than to simply hang onto power no matter the cost to the republic or the long-term damage done to our founding institutions.
The latest example of this comes from a one-time carpetbagger for the Clinton crime family and the party itself – Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
According to various reports over the weekend, including this exclusive report from The Daily Caller, McAuliffe – acting in an imperial manner like his master in the White House, President Obama – used an executive action to grant 60,000 felons the right to vote, an action some are saying will definitely deliver the state to his next master, Hillary Clinton.
The DC reported that the voting rights have been reestablished just in time for the 60,000 newly minted voters to register. The figure is nearly five times more than was previously reported and would be enough to win the state for his long-time friend and associate.
Initially, McAuliffe wanted to allow all of his state’s estimated 200,000 felons to vote but state courts slapped him down and said that each individual felon’s circumstances had to be weighed. To get around that requirement, McAuliffe used an autopen to rapidly sign thousands of letters, making it seem as though he had personally reviewed each one – even as his office claimed that only about 13,000 felons were affected.
But The DC’s Investigative Group learned that McAuliffe, who managed Hillary’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign, actually produced about five times the number of letters before the voter registration deadline than was previously publicly claimed.
In recent years a number of elections in Virginia have been decided by the narrowest of margins. For instance, the 2014 U.S. Senate race was only decided by 17,000 votes, while the race for attorney general came down to just 165 votes, The DC reported.
How close are the Clintons to McAuliffe? The latter personally guaranteed a loan for the purchase of the Clintons’ Chappaqua, New York, mansion in 1999 (though Hillary said early in her campaign the couple was broke after leaving the White House the next year – do “broke” people buy mansions?).
McAuliffe is also tight with the Democratic Party, having served as the Democratic National Committee’s chairman, where he raised a lot of money for the party.
Raising money for his party is actually more important to McAuliffe than his own wife, whom he left at the hospital as she was preparing to give birth just to attend a political fundraiser.
Yes, he’s that guy, which helps explain why he would allow felons to vote – he believes they will support his party.
And really, it’s anything for power.
