RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe quietly gave up his position as chairman of a company that makes small electric cars in December, but never announced his departure.
The former Democratic National Committee chairman's exit from GreenTech Automotive under growing media scrutiny was first reported Friday by Politico.
McAuliffe's campaign never disclosed his departure, even as he traveled the state for months touting GreenTech as an example of his acumen at creating jobs. GreenTech's Web site made no notice of his departure, either.
GreenTech CEO Charles Wang accepted McAuliffe's resignation in a letter dated Dec. 1.
Since then, The Associated Press and other news organizations have scrutinized GreenTech's efforts to begin production of the tiny MyCar electric vehicles at two northern Mississippi sites.
