Virginia’s Democrat nominee for Governor, Terry McAuliffe, attacked GOP opponent Glenn Youngkin for appearing at an election integrity event by claiming that anyone who questions the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s victory is attacking “the fundamentals of democracy,” and hurting our country, our men and women in uniform and "everybody." He demanded Youngkin “disavow this dangerous, deadly conspiracy theory once and for all."
Problems: Youngkin’s event was about securing the upcoming election. He’s never claimed the 2020 election was stolen and even said months ago that Biden was legitimately elected President.
McAuliffe, however, did repeatedly insist that the 2000 election was stolen from Al Gore. He accused the Supreme Court of tampering with the vote; said, "Folks, you know it. I know it. They know it. We won that election and let's never forget it;" and insisted that Gore would have won if all the votes were counted in Florida (a later recount by the media found that Bush won legitimately, which would make McAuliffe's claim...how to put this?...oh yes: a Big Lie.)
Youngkin’s spokesperson responded, "If Terry McAuliffe is accusing you of something, he’s probably guilty of it himself." Well, except when he said that Youngkin attended that election integrity event. I’m sure that’s something Terry McAuliffe would never do.
