Reflecting over McAuliffe’s conflicts of interests

For a man of such education and reputation, it is interesting to note that McAuliffe does have a lot of conflict of interest when it comes to his political and

business life. In fact, if one does look just close enough, it appears both go hand-in-hand and one couldn’t exist without the other.

One of McAuliffe’s initial forays into conflicts of interests comes from Federal City National Bank, a bank he helped to co-found in 1985. By 1988, the bank’s board elected McAuliffe as chairman, making him the youngest chairman in the United States Federal Reserve Bank’s charter association. The bank later merged with Credit International Bank, and he became Vice-Chairman there.

Terry McAuliffe’s DOJ investigation and other unscrupulous donations

According to GOP.com, Harvey Weinstein has donated a total of $296 290 to the Democratic National Committee. Out of that amount, Terry McAuliffe received $32 535 In-Kind Contributions.

While it is true that Mr Weinstein donated to Mr McAuliffe’s political campaign, it is also true that when (and only when) the story of Mr Weinstein’s many abuses reached the mainstream media, Mr McAuliffe did make some public statements about donating the amount given to him by Mr Weinstein to the  Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance.
