For those that may not know, recently, Ex-Virginia Governor Bob Mcdonnell was indicted. With details of the indictment coming out, the criminal proceedings thus far seem to be as ugly as predicted.
Indictment against the Mcdonnells, allege that the couple accepted gifts from a wealthy businessman in return for political favors. The indictment alleges the couple were deep in debt before they become Virginia’s first couple.
According to the court documents, the former Governor and his wife started soliciting money and gifts from pharmeceutical entrepreneur Jonnie Williams, almost immediately after moving into the governor’s mansion. In return for these favors and gifts, the governor allegedly promised he’d help Williams’ company, Star Scientific.
If such allegations turn out to be true, things don’t seem to be looking well for the possible 2016 Presidential candidate.
