The whole corruption case has turned into a real soap opera. I kid you not. I have a friend who is keeping up with this trial. I gave up on this case to keep up with it. Now, McDonnell is claiming that he and his wife were having marriage problems and denied quid pro quo. Love this cartoon pic:
Here the latest of the case from Washington Post:
Former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell (R) and his wife, Maureen, are battling a 14-count public corruption indictment that alleges that they lent the prestige of the governor’s office to a Richmond area businessman and that, in exchange, the businessman lavished them with gifts and money.
