Appearing on NBC News’ Meet the Press today, McAuliffe spewed more than a dozen lies in less than 6 minutes. Here are the facts.
1. MCAULIFFE’S LIE: “A bill I vetoed … that literally, parents could take books out of the curriculum.”
THE TRUTH: According to The Washington Post Fact Checker, McAuliffe mischaracterized the bills he vetoed.
Free to Learn Action (FTL Action) released a TV advertisement today highlighting policy positions of former Governor Terry McAuliffe that would sideline parents as they work to maintain their influence on what their children learn and are exposed to in school.
The ad highlights the devastating consequences of allowing partisan political agendas to seep into schools while also undermining parents’ roles in their child’s education.
Political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin’s campaign today announced the launch of a digital ad campaign highlighting Terry McAuliffe’s proposed tax hike, which would be the largest in Virginia history.
A fiscal analysis by the Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public Policy found that McAuliffe’s budget would increase spending in Virginia by $8 billion over the next biennium…
Virginia ended Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 with a record-breaking budget surplus of $2.6 billion. (Virginia’s budget year, or fiscal year, is from July 1 to June 30.) Virginia Governor Ralph Northam stated that the surplus was due to Virginia’s great business climate, pointing out that CNBC ranked Virginia as the #1 state for being business friendly. Not everyone agrees with CNBC. The Virginia Industry Foundation last November ranked Virginia as #11.
From its headquarters here on Duke Street, just north on the Potomac River from George Washington’s Mt. Vernon home, the National School Boards Association declared war on an unexpected enemy that has been the fabric of America since its birth hundreds of years ago: parents.
In a September 30 letter to President Joe Biden, the National School Boards Association sent a vitriolic missive to the president, with a laundry list of allegations…
Political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin’s campaign announced today the launch of a seven-figure statewide TV ad campaign highlighting Terry McAuliffe’s shocking statement at the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce debate this week: “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”
In Hudson, Ohio, several days ago, Mayor Craig Shubert addressed the School Board. “It has come to my attention that your educators are distributing essentially what is child pornography in the classroom,” he said. “I’ve spoken to a judge this evening, she’s already confirmed that, so I’m going to give you a simple choice. You either choose to resign from this board of education or you will be charged. Thank you.”
Schubert then walked away to riotous cheers from a crowd of outraged parents.
Right-to-work laws have been on the books in Virginia for nearly three-quarters of a century, but the two main candidates running to be the next governor hold opposing views on whether it should stay that way.
The current law has support from Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin, but is opposed by Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe.
The Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) today announced it has filed a legal action against the Virginia State Board of Elections (SBE) and the Virginia Department of Elections seeking declaratory and injunctive relief based upon the invalid Declaration of Candidacy filed by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe that would result in McAuliffe’s disqualification from appearing on any general election ballot.
