RICHMOND, Va. (WHSV) -- The fallout is continuing after fundraising letters sent from Governor Terry McAuliffe's political action committee offered access to the governor in exchange for donations.
Ethical issues like this have become a sensitive topic in the wake of the scandal involving former governor Bob McDonnell.
McAuliffe said he wasn't aware of the letters and that he didn't approve them.
Dr. Jim Josefson, a political science professor at Bridgewater College, said the letters were just too honest about what normally goes on in politics.
"It'd be nice if these sorts of things don't make people cynical, it should make them political. The fact that someone is out there buying your politics should make you want to claim it back rather than punt it to them," said Josefson.
McAuliffe said the letters likely came from "eager beavers" on his staff.
