Terry McAuliffe was a legendary Clinton fund raiser. Al Gore called him “the greatest fundraiser in the universe.”
McAuliffe also had the Midas Touch. In 1998 he invested $100,000 into something called Global Crossing and within 18 months had $18 million in his pocket. In less than four years Global Crossing went bankrupt, but McAuliffe knew to cash out well ahead of that. There’s more of this sordid affair here.
