Deeds accuses McAuliffe of attack on Democrats

with 5 comments

The Creigh Deeds campaign is accusing Terry McAuliffe of attacking fellow democrats in the former DNC chair’s new ad on payday lending.

In the ad McAuliffe claims that he is the only candidate who is in favor of a full ban of pay day lending. He also attacks the state legislature and indirectly former Governor and current Senator Mark Warner when he says the following in the ad:

“But some loans come at too high [of] a price because legislation that was passed in Richmond in 2002 allowed predatory payday lenders to do business in Virginia,”

In 2002,  Mark Warner was the Governor.

While the tough talk may show that McAuliffe isn’t afraid to “tell it like it is” when it comes to the problems facing Virginia, it puts him into a position where he can be called out on his  “I will not attack Democrats”  pledge.

Creigh Deeds took the opportunity to point that out.

The transcript of the McAuliffe ad and the Deeds release can be found after the jump.
