For John, BLUF: He was being investigated so he HAD to be a Republican. Nothing to see here; just move along.
I heard this on Howie Carr last evening—just the lead-in line.
Breaking the news to CNBC viewers early Monday evening about Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe being investigated by the FBI, chief Washington correspondent John Harwood slipped and referred to McAuliffe as “the second consecutive Republican Governor to face a corruption investigation” following predecessor and actual Republican Bob McDonnell.I got this lede here, from News Busters.
By the way, Republican Bob McDonnell is appealing his conviction.
In the mean time, in case you missed the joke, current Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe is a Democrat, and a "Yuge" supporter of Ms Hillary Clinton (and her husband).
I am guessing Reporter Harwood lives in Maryland.
Oh, and the InstaPundit often describes the media as "Democrat Operatives with bylines". Just saying.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
