New McAuliffe Ad Highlights Cuccinelli’s Star Scientific Gifts Scandal
Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s campaign released a new television ad today highlighting Ken Cuccinelli’s refusal to follow Governor McDonnell’s example and return the $18,000 in gifts he received from Star Scientific and its CEO Jonnie Williams. The ad, “Gifts,” features a small sampling of news reports from around Virginia reporting on Cuccinelli’s ongoing scandal.
“First Ken Cuccinelli failed to report thousands of dollars in gifts, and claimed that he had simply forgotten about a $1,500 turkey dinner. Now he continues to refuse to return the thousands of dollars in scandal-tainted gifts that he received from Jonnie Williams and Star Scientific,” said McAuliffe spokesperson Josh Schwerin. “Voters deserve to know about Ken Cuccinelli’s role in one of the worst political scandals in Virginia history, a role that is still playing out before our eyes on a daily basis.”
