RICHMOND, VA –
Presumptive Democrat nominee for the Virginia governor, Terry McAuliffe, appears to have ended his ties with electric car company GreenTech. While McAuliffe submitted his resignation as chairman on December 1, 2012, the information was not made public until last Friday.
“Terry McAuliffe’s walking away as chairman of GreenTech Auto undercuts what was supposed to be his chief qualification for office,” said Cuccinelli spokeswoman Anna Nix.
“His sudden and shady resignation exposes the fact that all the hype and fanfare was nothing more than smoke and mirrors for a business that has always been more about keeping McAuliffe in the headlines than creating jobs.”
McAuliffe’s campaign claims that his resignation was motivated by his commitment to running for governor.
