Terrible Terry Raising Cash All Over

We noted yesterday that while Terry McAuliffe is deriding the effect of lobbyist gifts during a public official’s service, he has no problem with using lobbyist dollars to fund his own ambitions. Now, we discover that while he’s talking job creation in Virginia, he has no problem going elsewhere to fund his efforts to seduce the people of our great commonwealth. From the Washington Post: 

In January, McAuliffe raised $350,000 at a New York fundraiser at the Park Avenue apartment of Hassan Nemazee, a prominent investment banker who was one of Hillary Clinton’s finance chairs. Bill Clinton stopped by unannounced.

Why, his scruples are in such limited quantities that he has no problem with making an appearance about the economy then skipping town to find funds to fuel his dream: 

On March 2, McAuliffe was in Northern Virginia to talk about job creation, small-business support and workforce training. That night, he attended a fundraiser at a Chicago restaurant hosted by J.B. Pritzker, a billionaire whose family founded the Hyatt hotel chain, and Kevin O’Keefe, a Clinton White House lawyer.

On March 4, McAuliffe held an economic roundtable in Roanoke. That night, he was at the home of Jim Pederson, a businessman who chaired the Arizona Democratic Party. “Terry is held in high regard and affection in our party,” Pederson said. “It doesn’t surprise me that there’s an outpouring for him now. It’s time for a little payback.”

It’s clear that Terry is the ultimate chameleon and carpetbagger, finding a place to set his roots and water it with thousands of dollars from national Democrats determined to make Virginia  a laboratory for left-wing policies.
