McAuliffe: No to Dominion Money?

McAuliffe again claimed today that he is accepting no money from Dominion, the state's biggest energy provider. While technically true, McAuliffe didn't volunteer (but opponent Creigh Deeds did in his rebuttal) that he held a campaign event at the home of a former president of the electric utility. McAuliffe has also accepted money from current and former employees of Dominion.

McAuliffe has not accepted any donations directly from Dominion, but he attended a gathering in his honor last week at the home of Thomas E. Capps, the company's retired president and chief executive officer. Capps donated $2,500 to his campaign. Eva Teig Hardy, a former executive and chief lobbyist for the company, contributed $7,750. Another executive Christopher B. Rivers contributed $1,700.
