Failed Job Creator. Political Hack. Policy Know Nothing.

Arlington, VAWith the Democrat primary now over, the Party has its gubernatorial nominee. Terry McAuliffe, a native of Syracuse, NY, is one of the Democratic Partys most prolific political fundraisers and over the years established himself as a renaissance man of the corrupt intersection of politics and business. Now McAuliffe, who lacks the credentials to be governor of any state much less the Commonwealth of Virginia, wants to reinvent himself and create a false story of himself as a businessman. To ensure Virginia voters see through his faade and can view McAuliffes real background of empty promises and fake businesses, America Rising has compiled this report on McAuliffes record.


Former Delegate Brian Moran (D-VA) Who Now Serves As Co-Chair Of McAuliffes Current Campaign, Criticized McAuliffes Claim Of Creating 100,000 Jobs, Saying Out Of Work Virginians Are Vulnerable To Someone Claiming They Have Created 100,000 Jobs. Thats Just Not True. MORAN: Terry, you have made -- on -- during these weeks of the campaign, youve made a great issue of -- big issue about jobs. Just today, youve mentioned jobs over and over again. Yet, you know, youve been criticizing even to the extent that youve created the job creation efforts of both Mark Warner and Tim Kaine. And, in fact, your record of creating jobs must be questioned: 300,000 Virginians are out of work right now. They are vulnerable to someone claiming that they have created 100,000 jobs. Thats just not true, Terry. A hundred thousand jobs is more than Bill Gates and Microsoft. You say youve built five Virginia businesses, but the Washington Post said they were run out of your home and never created a single Virginia job. You claim youll look out for peoples jobs, but as a consultant to Global Crossing CEO and as a board member of Telergy, you walked away with $20 million while over 10,000 people lost their jobs. So tell me, Terry, how is this a positive, credible campaign? And how can Virginia voters trust that youll care about their jobs or create any new jobs? (Brian Moran, Remarks At A Democratic Primary Debate, Annandale, VA, 5/19/09) 2009 Democrat Nominee Creigh Deeds (D-VA) Said Democrats Had To Be Just As Wary Of McAuliffe As They Were Of Bob McDonnell Because Of McAuliffes Business Career, Citing High-Interest Credit Card Deals And Raising 80% Of His Campaign Contributions From Out Of State. DEEDS: But this primary is really about who can go best head to head, whos got the best chance against Bob McDonnell, and whos going to stand up for Virginias middle-class families, whos going to stand up for working Virginians. And I just dont believe that working Virginians are prepared to have a nominee who made millions from credit card deals, high interest credit card deals, who stands with Donald Trump and Wall Street executives, who gets more than 80 percent of his campaign contributions from out of state. I dont think our party wants a nominee who still stands with a lobbyist under FBI investigation. (Creigh Deeds, Remarks At A Democratic
Primary Debate, Annandale, VA, 5/19/09)


McAuliffe made his work at electric car company GreenTech a central premise of his campaign, attempting to create an image of himself as a job creator. However, a number of news organizations have questioned McAuliffes claims noting that the company has failed to create jobs and is nothing more than an empty field in Mississippi. As more questions were asked, McAuliffe quietly resigned from the company and refuses to explain how his company never lived up to expectations as lives were destroyed.

Most of the questions concern his association with a would-be electric vehicle manufacturer. GreenTech Automotive was supposed to be a critical element of McAuliffes business case for electoral victory. Instead, it increasingly appears to be an albatross that his campaign is trying to downplay. (Editorial, McAuliffes Green Problem, The Virginia-Pilot

But in a battleground state such as Virginia, a more robust resume, or at least the suggestion of one, is needed.

Now, in Virginia, even more questions abound, especially in the wake of Mr. McAuliffes decidedly quiet resignation as GreenTech chairman sometime before Dec. 1, 2012.

Richmond Times-Dispatch: While McAuliffe Has Pointed To His Leadership Of The Electric-Car Company GreenTech As A Basis For His Election, His Involvement With The Company Also Has Raised A Number Of Legitimate Questions. Democrat Terry McAuliffe has pointed to his leadership of the electric-car company GreenTech Automotive as a reason to elect him governor. But his involvement with the company also has raised a number of legitimate concerns. (Editorial, McQuestions, Richmond Times-Dispatch, 4/14/13) Richmond Times-Dispatch: GreenTech Receiving Incentives In Mississippi Serves To Remind Observers That McAuliffes Successes Often Have Had As Much To Do With His Personal Connections As With His Business Acumen. Mississippi, where McAuliffes friend Haley Barbour, a Republican, was governor, apparently had fewer such compunctions. But this only serves to remind observers that McAuliffes successes often have had as much to do with his personal connections as with his business acumen. (Editorial, McQuestions, Richmond Times-Dispatch, 4/14/13) GreenTechs Production Has Fallen Short Of McAuliffes Predictions. On that score, the record also underwhelms. GreenTech has not exactly taken the automotive world by storm. In fact, its production has fallen short of the lofty predictions McAuliffe was making a couple of years ago, and Virginia officials privately expressed reservations about GreenTechs business plan at the time.

In 1997, Gary Winnick, owner of a billion dollar capital group, Pacific Capital, offered McAuliffe, politically connected friend of President Clintons, an opportunity to invest in a new internetrelated venture that would own and operate undersea fiber-optic cables called Global Crossing. McAuliffes initial investment of $100,000 grew to $18 million and he eventually made $8.1 million on the sale of Global Crossings Stock.

Soon after though in 2002, Global Crossing filed for bankruptcy in which investors lost $54 billion and 10,000 employees lost their jobs.

In 1992, Credit International Bank Took Over The Ailing Federal City National Bank In April 1992, Credit International Bank Took Over The Ailing Federal City National Bank And Changed Their Name To Federal Capital Bank.

Some, including the Districts Federal City National Bank and Sterlings National Bank of Northern Virginia, merged with stronger partners. Credit International Bank of the District, for example, has undergone a drastic face lift. Founded by a group of politically connected investors headed by former Reagan administration National Security Adviser Richard Allen, the bank was conceived as an international boutique bank servicing wealthy savers at home and advising an elite group of investors here and in Asia. But after taking over the ailing Federal City in April, Credit International changed its name to Federal Capital Bank, reflecting, according to new Chief Executive Officer Edward Harshfield, the banks new identity as a Washington-focused bank with a mission that is business- and professionally oriented.

In May 2009, The New York Times Reported That There Was Speculation That McAuliffe Could Run For Governor In Virginia, New York, Or Florida. When McAuliffe let it be known at the Democratic convention in Denver last August that he might run for governor, more than a few people were surprised. Yes, he grew up in a political family in Syracuse; his father, Jack, the treasurer of the Onondaga County Democratic Party, took him to political dinners, pressed him into service licking envelopes and introduced him to his first president when he was 7 and L.B.J. was campaigning at Syracuse University. And McAuliffe says elected office is something he has always thought about; indeed, there has been speculation over the years about his running for governor of three different states: Virginia, New York and Florida. But it is hardly typical for someone who has worked behind the throne to decide to run for office. It would be like David Axelrod announcing a run for mayor of Chicago.
