    Former VA Gov Bob McDonnell and wife charged in gifts case (Indictment Added)

    Wasn’t he once the great Republican hope? The kinda guy DC Republicans could do business with?

    The Washington Post reports, Former Va. Gov. McDonnell and wife charged in gifts case:

    Former Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell and his wife Maureen were charged in federal court Tuesday with illegally accepting gifts, luxury vacations and large loans from a wealthy Richmond-area businessman who sought special treatment from state government.

    The two were charged in connection with their relationship with dietary supplement executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr.

    Authorities alleged McDonnell and his wife received gifts from Williams again and again, lodging near constant requests for money, clothes, trips, golf accessories and private plane rides.

    In exchange, they alleged the McDonnells worked in concert to lend the prestige of the governorship to Williams’s struggling company, a small former cigarette manufacturer that now sells dietary supplements.

    Update:  Here is the Indictment (full embed at bottom of post):

    Can’t trust anything that Tyrant Obama’s storm troopers do. Holder would kill is mother for Tyrant Obama. There is no limit to what he would do to one of the Tyrant’s enemies.
