Sunday Nov. 10, 2002; 2:10 p.m. EST McAuliffe Relative Got Millions While Senate Dems Went Begging

In the wake of devastating Democratic Party defeats in last Tuesday's election, party faithful are complaining openly that Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe lost the U.S. Senate by making the defeat of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush his top priority - as questions swirl over whether McAuliffe's family ties played a role in questionable allocations of vital campaign cash.

In a development that was largely overlooked during the campaign, McAuliffe's father-in-law, Richard Swann, served as finance chairman for Bush's Democrat challenger Bill McBride, whose campaign benefited from record-breaking infusions of DNC cash during the closing weeks of the race. Meanwhile Democrats in close U.S. Senate races around the country went begging.

I wonder who got the contracts for the new DNC headquarters McAwful has been building in D.C. this year. I understand it's costing a lot of money.

Over at the cess-pit (dummies) there was a thread regarding getting rid of Clinton. The best insult the anti-Clinton forces could hurl at the Bill & Hill Glee Club was that they were gonna copy the thread over here at FR so we could all laugh are @sses off at them.

Have those people been allowed to post anything there since saying that, or were they summarily banned?

Bill, Hill and Terry openly stated that they wanted to defeat Jeb in order to embarrass GWB.

Isn't that also why they had the DNC spend a lot of money on Ron Kirk's predictably losing campaign for the TX Senate seat?

Hmmm, I wonder why the media were indicating both those races would be close, right up until Election Day. Jeb ended up winning by 13 points, 56-43. Cornyn ended up winning by 12 points, 55-43. Were the media bending the news to fit what they knew the Clintons wanted?

Over 900 FBI files were "missing" until they were "found" on a coffe table in the West Wing two years later. The Democrats swallowed that whole baloney, even though the Republican Chuck Colsen received 18 months in prison for 1 missing FBI file in the Watergate years.

Hillary was on the Democratic Watergate commitee and help draft the statement that "the President should be above the very appearance of impropriety". Her husband as President went on to re-define impropriety, because he questioned what "is" even means. Never in American history have we been dragged through anything like the Starr Report, and that left out the most NATIONALLY important charges. Clinton flung Cruise missiles around every time his zipper got caught going south, and terrorists had every reason to think they could attack at will. The Chinese just loved Clinton and who knows how much we'll have to pay in the future for that.

Self-examination doesn't seem to be in their vocabulary, it's all a mafia-type thing, winner take all and to hell with the law, just keep screaming at the opponents and don't piss off the thugs from Arkansas.

When Stalin's lieutenants became convinced he was going to mount another purge in which they would probably die, they in effect killed him. After Stalin had his stroke, it seems to be confirmed history that Beria, supported by the Politburo, denied him the medical treatment that might have saved his life. Beyond that, however, there are rumors that Stalin's stroke was medically induced. Stalin's nurse was the sister of his lieutenant Kaganovich.

Stalin did "get his". Reading the conflicting accounts about his death is interesting. Trying to figure out how Beria was actually killed afterwards is even more confusing.

Still, this isn't the Soviet Union, 1953. The Clintons will drag down the Democrats though, and it will be a long series of messy, hysterical deathrows. Babs Streisand, Elinor Clift, the staff of the Washington Post, etc. - we'll never hear the end of it from them.

DOL Sues Union Fund Tied to Clinton-Crony McAuliffe
The U.S. Dep't of Labor filed suit May 5 against two trustees of the $8.3 billion Nat. Electrical Benefit Fund charging improper dealings between the fund and top Clinton-fundraiser Terence R. McAuliffe. According to DOL, NEBF trustee John Grau and ex-trustee Jack F. Moore imprudently lent over $6 million in pension assets. NEBF is operated jointly by the Int'l Bhd. of Electrical Workers, from which Moore retired as secretary in 1997, and the Nat. Electrical Contractors Ass'n, of which Grau is a vice president.

The scam involved a $6 million loan in 1992 to Columbia Land & Development Corp. of Orlando to buy a subdivision called Country Run which was to be developed into 545 lots. McAuliffe and his wife, Dorothy S. McAuliffe, own Columbia. The loan was in default from Dec. 1992 to Oct. 1997. DOL says NEBF should have known the loan couldn't be repaid in full with interest. The suit seeks the trustees to reimburse the fund for losses, including interest.

The McAuliffes also own Am. Capitol Management, a partner with NEBF in a separate investment called Am. Capitol Group I Assets LP, which guaranteed payment of the Columbia loan.  In a separate 1991 investment, NEBF paid $38.7 million to buy five apartment complexes and a shopping center near St. Petersburg. The partnership bought the properties from the Resolution Trust Corp., which had taken control of them from a bank in receivership that had been owned by McAuliffe's father-in-law.

DOL alleges NEBF imprudently purchased a $2.45 million interests in ACGIA, a move that reduced the value of the ACM guarantee on the Columbia loan. McAuliffe's holdings in ACM had been collateral for the loan. The suit further alleges trustees made one of the purchases in the ACM partnership even though the Columbia loan was in default. The pension fund then reportedly sold its share of the partnership and the Columbia loan to ACM at a loss. [Pensions & Investments 5/17/99]
