Democratic Virginia State Fair nominee Terry McAuliffe announced that he plans to “build an education,” and two weeks later he created a firestorm by telling parents not to say anything about what public schools teach their children.
In a video taken Tuesday by the conservative Virginia Rising Research Group, McAuliffe was seen chasing a masked tracker in Alexandria asking for an education roundtable discussion about his education stance.

“Who do you think should have control over education if there are no Virginia parents?” The tracker heard McAuliffe walking toward his vehicle.
“Are you still vaccinated?” McAuliffe shot again. “That’s the question I want to know. You have to wear a mask. You’re dangerous here.”
“I’ll build an education,” he later declared, before heading to the passenger side of the vehicle. “That’s why LBL led me. Glenn Youngkin destroyed the education system in Virginia.”

McAuliffe himself is shown in a tweet without a mask, and his wife, Dorothy McAuliffe, and George Mason University faculty member Annie Holton were both wearing masks.
“Terry McAuliffe, a forty-year career politician, applies to everyone except the law,” Youngkin campaign spokesman Christian Martinez told LBL. “McAuliffe was caught in Amtrak in violation of federal law, and then violated the requirements of Virginia Tech’s interior mask.
At Tuesday’s round table, McAuliffe Has been reported The president is “unpopular” in Virginia and has said in recent years that Virginians are “frustrated” about the president and the Democrats in Congress, but that he will join President Biden on the campaign trail.
McAuliffe, who served as Virginia’s governor from 2014 to 2018, sparked the wrath of conservatives late last month, saying he doesn’t want parents to dictate what schools teach their children.
“I’m not going to let parents come to school and get out the books and make their own decisions,” the former governor said during a debate against his Republican opponent, Glenn Youngkin. “I don’t think parents should tell the school what to do.”
Launching a “parental content” initiative that mobilizes parents across the state, Youngkin has captured the criticism.
“It is pathetic to see Terry McAuliffe reuse the same old empty promises, failed policies and dishonest attacks he has been repeating for 12 years,” Martinez told LBL. “Now, McAuliffe wants to stifle and silence parents so their special-interest allies can force their radical political agenda into the classroom and teach their children what to think instead of restoring excellence.

McAuliffe Told WTKR This week parents were “too involved” in Virginia’s education plans.
“Parents are very involved. We have school boards. We’ve got a state board. We have a good curriculum here in Virginia,” he said.
McAuliffe’s campaign did not immediately respond to LBL’ response.
