    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe under federal investigation for campaign contributions

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the FBI and prosecutors from the Justice Department's public integrity unit, U.S. officials briefed on the probe say.

    The investigation dates to at least last year and has focused, at least in part, on whether donations to his gubernatorial campaign violated the law, the officials said.

    As part of the probe, the officials said, investigators have scrutinized McAuliffe's time as a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, a vehicle of the charitable foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton.

    Among the McAuliffe donations that drew the interest of the investigators was $120,000 from a Chinese businessman, Wang Wenliang, through his U.S. businesses. Wang also has been a donor to the Clinton foundation, pledging $2 million. U.S. election law prohibits foreign nationals from donating to federal, state or local elections. Penalties for violations include fines and/or imprisonment.

    Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order on April 22 restoring voting rights to more than 200,000 convicted felons in Virginia. McAuliffe’s order also allows ex-felons to serve on juries, run for public office and apply for restoration of their gun rights. It applies to all ex-felons, including those guilty of violent offenses such as murder and rape. As of last week, election officials said nearly 4,000 felons had signed up to vote, media outlets reported.

    Republicans call it a favor to Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, McAuliffe’s close friend and political ally, who could benefit from higher numbers of minority voters in the crucial swing state.

    I can't believe someone connected to the Clintons even has an air of corruption about them!

    Best quote I've been able to find.....

    McAuliffe has been the Clintons’ leading bagman for decades. He was co-chairman of the Clinton 2008 campaign. In the 1990s, he claims that he raised “about $275 million for Clinton’s interests over the years,” including the Clinton legal defense fund, the Clinton presidential library, and Hillary’s New York Senate race. As The Washington Post reported back in 1999, McAuliffe “pledged to put up $1.35 million in cash to secure a mortgage for the Clintons” on their house in Chappaqua. That loan allowed the Clintons to avoid their $5 million in debt to get the home loan, allowing Hillary to run from New York State.

    Terry is as sleazy as they come, from either party

    But it's be nice if the FBI / DOJ etc didn't constantly leak like a sieve
