The Richmond Times-Dispatch is reporting that Terry McAuliffe wants gifts to the Governor and other public officials to be banned if they’re valued over $100.
That’s not a bad idea.
But, Terry McAuliffe lecturing anyone about gifts to public officials is a little like Anthony Weiner lecturing about Internet manners or Mark Sanford talking about government accountability.
McAuliffe wrote the book on “gifts” to public officials. And sold it for a night in the Lincoln Bedroom.
Ken Cuccinelli’s campaign has it exactly right.
“Terry McAuliffe’s repackaged policy proposals will not convince anyone familiar with his history as a political dealmaker that he has any credibility on issues related to good government,” said Cuccinelli spokeswoman Anna Nix.
