Virginia Governor Mired In Controversy Over Gifts, Loans

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, once viewed as having 2016 ambitions, is not having a good year. He's at the center of state and federal investigations involving $145,000 in questionable financial assistance from a political donor whose company McDonnell and his wife took steps to promote. That includes $15,000 to help pay for their daughter's wedding โ€” a disclosure made by the former chef at the Executive Mansion, himself accused of stealing food.
