RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe says he was not aware that his chief of staff made a potential job offer to the daughter of a state senator who was considering resigning this summer. McAuliffe says Paul Reagan acted alone in making a possible offer to the daughter of former state Sen. Phil Puckett in order to keep Puckett in office. Reagan’s possible job offer was made public Thursday by The Washington Post. Puckett’s resignation gave Republicans control of the Senate and hurt McAuliffe’s chances of expanding Medicaid, his top legislative priority. The FBI has investigated a possible job offer made to Puckett by the GOP-controlled tobacco commission around the time of his resignation.
