WITH ALL THE BROUHAHA OVER TED CRUZ AND DEFUNDING OBAMACARE, ONE CAN EASILY FORGET THAT ROBERT CUCCINELLI WHO IS RUNNING AGAINS MCAULIFFE FOR GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIAN WAS THE FIRST LEGISLATOR TO CHALLENGE OBAMACARE IN THE COURTS…..HE DESERVES TO WIN AGAINST SLEAZY CLINTON ENFORCER MCAULIFFE…..RSK
Ayear ago, when Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic nominee for governor of Virginia, was a cog in the Obama campaign, he insisted that Mitt Romney had to come clean with his financial documents. “By not releasing them,” he said, “the imagination runs wild.”
So what is Terry McAuliffe trying to hide now? When he was asked in Wednesday night’s gubernatorial debate why he hasn’t released more of his tax returns, he lapsed into a tap dance. Fred Astaire he is not. “I’ve gone beyond what the last governors have done, when Gov. Kaine, Gov. Warner and Gov. McDonnell ran,” he said. “I’ve gone up and beyond that.” Then he abruptly changed the subject to an attack on his Republican rival, state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
Our imagination is running wild. Earlier this year, Mr. McAuliffe released a six-page summary of his tax returns, showing that he earned about $16.5 million in the years 2009 through 2011. The summary lacked the detail he insisted Republicans must provide. Even his “modified limited hangout,” as the Nixon White House once called such summaries, was offered only in response to Mr. Cuccinelli’s providing eight years of complete tax returns. His returns showed his income between 2005 and 2012 ranged from a high of $264,296 in 2005 to a low of $134,078 in 2009.
