What is Terry Hiding?

RPV has been hammering hard calling for Terry McAuliffe to release his tax returns. Susan Stimpson, candiddate for Lt.Governor agrees.

Stimpson has released a press release in which she has made her tax returns available and has called on all candidates seeking state-wide office this year to do the same.

“Everyone wants transparency in government. Ken Cuccinelli has led the way in disclosure of his tax records,” Stimpson said in a statement. “By contrast, his opponent Terry McAuliffe refuses to release his taxes.”

Facing pressure from Republicans, he provided that information last month days after Cuccinelli allowed reporters to review hundreds of pages of his tax records covering eight years.

Stimpson is one of seven Republicans pursuing the party nomination for lieutenant governor.

Her campaign manager Tim Edson said Stimpson is leading by example because “she has nothing to hide” just a record of paying taxes “like hardworking middle class Virginians do.”

Candidates who refuse to follow suit and release their tax records evidentally “have something to hide,” concluded Edson.

  1. What is Terry hiding? He has nothing to hide……you guys are doing a circus of epic proportions…everyone from McDonnell, Cooch, and now Corey!! whatta team!!!!! Terry and the Dems can simply watch in amazement….and of course…………we win………

  2. I’m not satisfied with the “summaries” McAuliffe provided. VA voters need/want to see source of income and which tax avoidance strategies he uses. This much investigated candidate has plenty to hide.

  3. What does he have to hide? A pattern of sleazy political dealings dating back to the ’90’s that are the basis of his fortune.

    “Mr. McAuliffe defers to his lawyers and bankers when it comes to documents. ‘I’ve signed thousands of documents, but never read them, ‘ he said”

    “Mr. McAuliffe’s equal partner in the deal was a pension fund controlled by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the National Electrical Contractors Association. Mr. McAuliffe put up $100. The pension fund put up $39 million, but enjoyed a preferred position on any profits.”

    “The civil suit, filed last May, accuses Mr. Moore of acting imprudently when the fund bought back shares of Mr. McAuliffe’s interest in the partnership. (Mr. McAuliffe used some of those proceeds to buy Jefferson National.)

    The Labor Department also said that the fund had made an imprudent $6 million loan in 1992 for a real estate development company controlled by Mr. McAuliffe. The $6 million pension fund loan was used by Mr. McAuliffe to clear up the Resolution Trust Corporation lawsuit, but the new pension fund loan was soon in default, court records show…”

    And on… and on… and on…
