Chairman Mullins: Governor McAuliffe Should Return Donations from Thompson, Minyon Moore

— Thompson plead guilty to conspiracy on Tuesday; Court filings implicate Moore in same alleged campaign finance conspiracy–  

It’s hard to find someone connected to Terry McAuliffe who isn’t involved in some sort of scandal.

Yesterday, the Washington Post reported that Minyon Moore, “a long time adviser to Hillary Rodham Clinton personally sought and secured the funding for what prosecutors say was an illegal shadow operation to boost Clinton’s 2008 presidential bid.”

Terry McAuliffe was the chairman of Clinton’s 2008 White House bid.

The filings were made resultant to a plea deal struck by Jeffrey Thompson, who plead guilty to conspiracy in an effort to raise “off the books money” for the 2008 Clinton campaign.

Thompson donated $2,500 McAuliffe’s 2009 campaign — a donation that McAuliffe refused to return during the 2013 campaign.  Moore also donated to McAuliffe’s 2013 campaign, giving $1,500.

So who is Minyon Moore? One of Terry McAuliffe’s primary confidants during his time as Chair.

Terry McAuliffe describes her in his book, “What A Party,” on page 273:

“My first official act as chairman was to name Minyon Moore as my chief operating officer. Minyon was one of the classiest, most talented women in American politics, as well as one of the most loyal. She started out in Chicago working with the Rev. Willie Barrow at Operation PUSH, then moved on to Jesse Jackson’s 1984 and 1988 campaigns, and later served as assistant to the President and director of political affairs in the Clinton White House. Minyon and I agreed that we were really going to shake up the party together.”

RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

“When Terry McAuliffe was first approached about returning these donations in 2013, he refused to answer questions, and instead attacked his Republican opponent for trying to create a ‘distraction.'”

“Now, Terry McAuliffe has no Republican opponent, and he has no excuse. Terry McAuliffe should return these donations immediately. Virginians already have more than enough reasons to be concerned about this governor’s ethics habits. Failing to return these donations would simply drive home the fact that impropriety is simply standard operating procedure for Terry McAuliffe.”

    It’s funny how the Republican’s are using Medicaid expansion as a “shield”, to mask their massive increase in spending in the new budget.

    These massive increases in spending are far beyond any increases in inflation or the cost of living. They are not sustainable.

    This is a McDonnell and Republican budget. To call it a Conservative budget is nothing but a lie. There is nothing “clean” about this budget, or, the Virginia GA.

    Throw your pen away Terry, don’t sign anything! The last Conservative budget was during the Kaine administration!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
