Citizens United targets ‘Fast Terry’ McAuliffe
  • Razbo Oscar July 25, 2013 - 2:18 pm #81317 Reply

    The conservative group Citizens United has produced a scathing film about former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe and plans to spend six figures promoting it amid McAuliffe's campaign for governor of Virginia, the group's leadership told POLITICO.

    The negative documentary, titled "Fast Terry," will debut online in the coming weeks. The substance of the film is focused on two episodes in McAuliffe's business career that Republicans have attacked: his leadership at the auto startup GreenTech and his planned investment in a biofuels venture, Franklin Pellets.

    According to published reports, both enterprises have fallen well short of initially high expectations; Citizens United intends to put those stories in front of Virginia voters. A spokesman for the group said it will initially spend about $350,000 on television and Internet ads promoting the movie.

    The only people who watch that stuff online are the people who already would never vote for him. They’re better off spending it on traditional 30-second spots.

    Even usually dependable Republican donors are avoiding Cuccinelli. McAuliffe has twice the money, which is of course the only thing that matters in elections.

    If there’s anything I’ve learned from Arlnow, it’s to watch the reaction of novasteve before deciding how I feel about something.

    When nova doesn’t approve of something, it makes my “favorites” list.

    When nova likes something, I am moved to disapprove of it.

    So, I’ll wait for him to weigh-in on it before I determine how I feel about the video.

    Chances are, he’s gonna LOVE it.
