Democrats Play Dirty: VA Governor & Hillary Friend Uses Felons For The Win

As Hillary Clinton finds herself in a failing presidential campaign, it seems her fellow Democrats are willing to play dirty, hoping to help her secure the win. However, the move that longtime Hillary friend and Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe just made is a new kind of low, even for the liberal left. He wants Hillary to successfully take his state, and he’s willing to use felons to ensure it happens.

Not only is McAuliffe Hillary’s long-time friend, he also managed her unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign, so his latest move is highly suspect. Knowing Virginia’s recent political history has seen multiple races that were decided by tiny margins, the Virginia governor just granted voting rights to as many as 60,000 convicted felons just in time for them to register to vote, The Daily Caller reports. This is “nearly five times more than previously reported and enough to win the state for his long-time friend, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The relationship between McAuliffe and the Clintons should cause this bold move to draw scrutiny, considering McAuliffe personally guaranteed a loan for the purchase of Bill and Hillary’s Chappaqua, New York mansion in 1999 and also served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee where he was a prodigious fund raiser. Add that to the fact that the Democratic leanings of felons are well-known, and it becomes obvious that this was just a dirty trick to help Hillary win. But, there’s more.

Originally, McAuliffe moved to allow all of Virginia’s estimated 200,000 felons to vote, after which Hillary’s staff emailed him, calling it a “great announcement” and set up a call about it. Unfortunately for them, state courts said each individual felon’s circumstances must be weighed. However, McAuliffe wasn’t about to give up on his scheme to help secure Virginia in Hillary’s favor, so he used a mechanical autopen to rapidly sign thousands of letters as if he had personally reviewed them.

Virginia officials, including registrars, state legislators, and even officers of the Board of Elections were shocked to learn McAuliffe had signed so many letters, stating they were kept in the dark. In fact, it was The Daily Caller News Foundation (TheDCNF) Investigative Group who uncovered the fact that the number of letters, originally reported to be 13,000 by McAuliffe’s office, was actually between 50,000 and 60,000.

Adding more hope for McAuliffe’s preferred candidate, those who received his letter also got voter registration forms with pre-paid return postage — a service not given to any others in the state. McAuliffe explicitly asked these felons to vote for Hillary.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time McAuliffe has participated in questionable favors. While the FBI was first investigating Hillary’s use of private email addresses and a home-brewed server to conduct official business as Secretary of State, McAuliffe did a major favor for the wife of a senior FBI executive who was running for a Virginia legislative seat, The DC also reports.

Sadly, I guess if you want a criminal to be president, you have to use criminals to get her there. Felons, criminals, liars, illegal aliens, communists, and Muslim terrorists seem to make up the faces of the Democrat Party while any trace of respect for America is missing. All things considered, it’s no wonder Hillary Clinton is the perfect Democrat candidate and the worse choice for our country.
