Terry McAuliffe, the former Democrat governor of Virginia who is running for the office again, falsely claims on his campaign website that his opponent, Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin, didn’t accept the results of the 2020 election. The allegation is ironic, given McAuliffe’s own documented history of denying the election results of 2000.
McAuliffe on his campaign website accuses Youngkin of “parroting Trump’s conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.”
As Fox News reported, “Youngkin has not claimed that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Trump. He announced an ‘election integrity task force’ ahead of the gubernatorial battle, saying the issue was not a partisan one, but one related to ‘democracy.’”
Youngkin has also said on Fox Business that President Joe Biden was “legitimately elected our president.”
“He took the oath and was sworn in. He’s sleeping in the White House,” Youngkin added. “He’s, unfortunately, signing executive order after executive order.”
Compare that to comments McAuliffe made in the years after the 2000 election
