Va. GOP wants audit of governor’s PAC after returned gift

STATE-NEWSRICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ The Republican Party of Virginia is calling for an audit of Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s political action committee. Republican officials said Thursday that an outside agency should review donations to the governor’s PAC to verify that there are no foreign donors. The call for an audit comes a day after The Associated Press reported that McAuliffe was returning a $25,000 donation from a company with links to Angola’s state-owned oil company because the company wouldn’t certify that the donation was legally made. Foreign donors cannot give to campaign accounts in the U.S.  A McAuliffe political aide said the PAC properly vets its donors and mocked the Republican Party’s “anemic fundraising.”
