Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) appeared to imply that the 2000 election was stolen during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Democrats have spent the last year demonizing anyone who questions the integrity of the election, and yet McAuliffe seemed to have no problem asking those same questions.
In fact, McAuliffe has spent the last two decades claiming that the 2000 election was stolen. In 2001, McAuliffe said, “Katherine Harris, Jeb Bush, Jim Baker, and the Supreme Court hadn’t tampered with the results, Al Gore would be president. Folks, you know it. I know it. They know it. We won that election.”
McAuliffe’s hypocrisy was so blatant that CNN anchor Dana Bash called him out on it saying, “So, you know, you’re being criticized for saying, wait a minute, the Republicans are questioning election integrity when that’s exactly what you did multiple times.”
McAuliffe responded, “First of all, the 2000 election went to the United States Supreme Court. The United States Supreme Court shut down the voting, overruled the Florida Supreme Court, and stopped the counting of votes. That is quite a difference from what you had in the Trump election where 33, 34 cases, whatever it was, was brought up.”
As far as Democrats are concerned, when they do it, it is ok. When Republicans do it, it is undermining the nation and is tantamount to treason.
