I am shocked, shocked!

 

 

The political organization of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the Federal Bureau of Investigation who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use.

Campaign finance records show Mr. McAuliffe’s political-action committee donated $467,500 to the 2015 state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI.

The Virginia Democratic Party, over which Mr. McAuliffe exerts considerable control, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to Dr. McCabe’s campaign in the form of mailers, according to the records. That adds up to slightly more than $675,000 to her candidacy from entities either directly under Mr. McAuliffe’s control or strongly influenced by him. The figure represents more than a third of all the campaign funds Dr. McCabe raised in the effort.

 

Go here to read the rest.  When Trump says the system is rigged, he doesn’t know the half of it.

  1. She spent $1.9 million in a losing campaign for the state legislature? I had no idea a Sandra Fluke clone was running for office in Virginia.

    When I was involved in politics in my home town, the state senate constituencies had populations of about 300,000. There was a local businessman who ran for an at-large seat on the city council (constituency population, 220,000). His ‘unprecedented’ campaign war chest contained….$17,000. That was in 1989. A contextually similar sum today would be about $50,000. Thanks, Pres. Fundraiser.

  2. Art,
    .
    You’re likely correct. State senate campaign budgets likely average in the mid five-figures (like $50,000, SJW’s). A one-time, half-million dollar donation would be outlandishly huge for a state legislature campaign.

    The stupidity! It hurts even worse than the corruption.
