In anticipation that he may well lose in the November 2 governor’s race, former governor Terry McAuliffe has hired the Elias Law Group. Marc Elias formerly worked as a partner at the law firm Perkins Coie. Perkins Coie played a major part in concocting the fraudulent Steele Dossier that alleged Russians helped Trump cheat in his 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton. The two-year Mueller investigation found no evidence to support this allegation.
Concerned that news of this hire could reflect negatively on McAuliffe, campaign spoksperson Christina Freundlich sent out an email seeking the media’s help in suppressing this story. She carelessly used a media list that included Fox News. Now the story is gaining a wider audience.
Additional news that is unflattering toward McAuliffe included a gaggle of Young Democrats disguised as white nationalists appearing at a Glen Youngkin campaign event, a sample of vote-by-mail ballots that showed in 90% of cases the named voter did not live at the address the ballot arrived at, that the campaign invested nearly $500,000 in fake news websites, and Renzo Olivari, Communications Director for Terry McAuliffe, has authored a series of bigoted tweets that used the N-Word and insulting stereotypes of the black community.
Freundlich brushed all of this off, calling it “innovations that the Democratic Party has been fostering and testing across the nation. We don’t just sit back and let voters make up their own minds. We actively direct them toward the correct way of thinking and acting, which has been succinctly summarized as ‘just win, baby.’”
In related news, former president Obama called Virginia parents’ objections to the Loudoun County School Board’s cover-up of a sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl by a male transgender student in a restroom “fake outrage aimed at derailing the reelection of Gov. McAuliffe. Sexual experimentation by teenagers is common. Many are intrigued by oral sex and sodomy. I know I was. That such experimentation is now more feasible with restrooms being open to persons of whatever sexual orientation is something to be applauded. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the so-called assault charge was invented by the girl out of fear of what her parents would think.”
Oddly, though, the boy charged with the sexual assault who was moved to another school as part of the cover-up committed another similar assault. Further, just this week juvenile court judge Pamela Brooks ruled that the boy did force himself on a 15-year-old girl last May in restroom at Stone Ridge High School in Leesburg, Virginia.
