MCAULIFFE TAKES $100,000 CAMPAIGN DONATION FROM ALLY OF RAPIST HARVEY WEINSTEIN


The Daily Mail just revealed that Terry McAuliffe took an additional $100,000 for his campaign this year alone from Paul Tudor Jones, a close ally of rapist Harvey Weinstein and former board member of the Weinstein Company. 

McAuliffe’s donor even privately consoled Harvey Weinstein as allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate contact came to light. “I love you,” Paul Tudor Jones wrote to Weinstein. “Focus on the future as America loves a great comeback story … The good news is, this will go away sooner than you think and it will be forgotten!”

Jones also made negative remarks about women to students at the University of Virginia, saying, “You will never see as many great women investors or traders as men.” Jones said women could not stay focused on investment ideas or market movement once they have children.

Terry McAuliffe talks about supporting women, but his actions convey just the opposite. McAuliffe spent his entire adult life with another rapist, Bill Clinton, who campaigned for McAuliffe during his first two runs for governor in Virginia and is likely to do so again this year.

McAuliffe once called Harvey Weinstein a “friend,” and in 2013 accepted more than $57,000 in campaign contributions from Weinstein, some of which appear to be associated with a potential flight on the rapist’s plane two days before the 2013 election.

McAuliffe also has embraced Virginia Democrat Joe Morrissey, who served time in prison for having a sexual relationship with his underage receptionist. 

And who can forget about McAuliffe bragging about leaving his own wife in tears

If Terry McAuliffe respects women, he should immediately return the $100,000 donation he accepted from Paul Tudor Jones.
