Democratic Candidate Called Out For Lying During VA Gubernatorial Debate

Well, he is a politician


A special prosecutor's report concluding that Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli did not violate state disclosure laws by neglecting to report political gifts was hotly contested on July 20 during the first debate between Virginia's gubernatorial candidates. …

McAuliffe said the ethics report said Cuccinelli "should have been prosecuted, but Virginia laws are insufficient."

There is nothing in the report that remotely supports McAuliffe's claim. To the contrary, the report concludes Cuccinelli did not violate any laws.

McAuliffe's hyperbolic statement is not only wrong, it defies any reasonable reading of the report. We rate his comment Pants on Fire.
