Yesterday, after much handwringing and head scratching, Terry McAuliffe finally had the courage—through a spokesperson—to call for Bob Filner’s resignation.
McAuliffe’s act of courage came after 18 women, including a great grandmother, accused the predator mayor of harassment.
Now that Terry McAuliffe has called for Filner’s resignation, perhaps his campaign can now explain why he failed to do the same when Anthony Weiner disgraced himself and his office in 2011?
Does it have anything to do with the fact that McAuliffe wasn’t running for office at that point?
Will he speak out against Weiner now?
Will McAuliffe say or do anything that isn’t driven by political necessity?
In 2011, McAuliffe On Whether Weiner Should Resign: “I Don’t Like To Get Into Peoples Personal Lives And All Of That…” HOST: “One last question, and this is the one that I should have asked first but I let you off the hook until now, should Anthony Weiner resign? McAULIFFE: “First of all…” HOST: “Tim Kaine says he should.” McAULIFFE: “I don’t like to get into peoples personal lives and all of that…”
