TWO-FACED TERRY MCAULIFFE’S CAMPAIGN OF LIES STOPS IN CHARLOTTESVILLE AND MANASSAS TODAY


Two-Faced Terry McAuliffe is headed to Charlottesville and Manassas today to do what 40-year political bosses do: talk out of both sides of their mouth on an issue.

Terry McAuliffe’s plan for the day is to smear Glenn’s record in the private sector because Terry knows his record as a failed governor is no match for an outsider with fresh thinking and a career of building businesses and creating jobs. 

Two-Faced Terry will attack Glenn for leading a business of nearly 2,000 employees. 

But Terry neglects to mention—or is just trying to fool Virginia voters—that he profited handsomely from that same business. 

According to a recent The Associated Press article, “records reveal that McAuliffe invested at least $690,000 in Carlyle Funds between December 2007 and the end of 2016,” a timeframe that covers his time as Governor of Virginia. 

But Terry has not been forced to answer many of the questions about his investment in Carlyle.

We hope that you will take the opportunity to force Terry to come clean on the following questions:

  • Did you divest from Carlyle Funds for the purposes of filing a financial disclosure without Carlyle, only to reinvest after you filed your disclosure? 
  • When did you divest from Carlyle, specifically? 
  • Did you receive any special treatment with your regard to your investment in Carlyle Funds?
  • Prior to 2013, The Carlyle Group required a minimum investment of between $5 million and $20 million. The Associated Press reports that you invested “at least $690,000.” How many millions did you initially invest in 2007?
  • When you come under scrutiny for investments, you describe yourself as a “passive investor” to seem innocent. Regarding your many failed deals as Governor, including with the Chinese firms Tranlin and Lindenburg, would you describe yourself as a passive Governor?
  • Apparently, you trusted Glenn Youngkin and The Carlyle Group enough to invest “at least $690,000” with them. Why shouldn’t Virginians trust Glenn Youngkin to deliver a good return on investment for them?
