According to new reports, “the most recent operative of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D.) to join Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign was at the helm of a political action committee that offered access to McAuliffe in exchange for cash.” The Washington Free Beacon,
Michael Halle, a top McAuliffe aide who worked as executive director of the Common Good VA PAC, will join Clinton’s Iowa team and is expected to serve in a senior role in the campaign’s political department, according to a report from the New York Times’ Jonathan Martin…
Following the 2013 campaign in Virginia, Halle became executive director of Common Good VA PAC, which came under fire for offering access to McAuliffe, his wife, and policy experts in exchange for large contributions.
A solicitation circulated by the PAC promised that a $100,000 contribution would get the donor the opportunity to “have a private dinner with the governor and first lady, sit down at a roundtable discussion with the governor, and have monthly meetings with policy experts,” according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Donations totaling between $10,000 and $100,000 would have earned a donor different amounts of face time.
