Democrat Fundraiser Runs for Governor

Things are heating up in Virginia. Democrat Party fundraiser extraordinaire Terry McAuliffe — the man who helped bankroll Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign (and, more recently, Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign) — has decided to run for governor. Toward that end, he already has raised mountains of money. And why not? “I’ve got great relationships. I have a lot of friends,” he told the Washington Times.

And what friends! His roster of supporters reads like a Who’s Who of leftist radicals. For example, there is Albert J. Dwoskin of the George Soros-founded Democracy Alliance, an organization whose goal is to fund a leftwing political movement and Democratic electoral victories. Dwoskin is also an official of Catalist — created by Clinton advisor Harold Ickes and financed by (surprise) Soros — which functions as an information clearing house for leftwing activists.

Another McAuliffe supporter is Hassan Nemazee, a multimillionaire Iranian-American investment banker who is an apologist for the terrorism-sponsoring Islamic government in Iran. And then there is Stanley Shuman, an investment banker who, after making huge monetary contributions to the DNC, was named by then-President Clinton to the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board even though he had no intelligence or national security experience.

McAuliffe himself has been under scrutiny for his awarding of “favors” to his generous donor partisans. During the Clinton administration, huge donations were rewarded by sleepovers in the Lincoln Bedroom, ambassadorships, and other perks. Indeed, there were so many questions of impropriety that a task force headed by Charles LaBella, a veteran federal prosecutor handpicked by Attorney General Janet Reno, was commissioned.

This election will be pivotal for Virgina and for the nation at large. A McAuliffe defeat would be instrumental in reversing the socialist tilt of the country after the election of Barack Obama and the Democratic takeover of Congress. Virginia voters will have a chance to send a strong message: change course, we don’t like where things are going.
