McAuliffe's Woman Problem

Jill Lawrence says Terry McAuliffe (D) has a potential problem with women voters even though he's running against anti-abortion candidate Ken Cuccinelli (R) for Virginia governor.

Passages in McAuliffe's book include him "ditching his wife Dorothy while she was in labor" but the "more problematic anecdote to me is one that involves the birth of another baby, in this case a newborn son whom McAuliffe left in the car with Dorothy on the way home from the hospital while he spent 15 minutes at a fundraiser. She was in tears, he writes. How the heck did he think women would react to that?"

BuzzFeed looks at nine passages from McAuliffe's book that might make voters cringe.
