"Spokesmen for the McDonnells did not comment for the Post’s report, but the governor — while apologizing broadly — has insisted that Williams received no special treatment for the $165,000 in gifts and loans received by the governor and his family."

No special treatment? Yeah. Riiiiiight.

Looks like toolbooth bob is going to prison.

McDonnell was once considered a potential 2016 presidential contender or a possible U.S. attorney general.

If he is indicted, he'll have met all of the current qualifications for U.S. Attorney General. IMHO! (Okay! It's a joke! Save the flames and arrows!)

I began my dislike for this guy when he endorsed Romney way before he needed to. UGH! He is another one I blame for Obama.

Wow. Quid Pro Quo in politics. Who’d a thunkit? This is certainly a first.

The next thing that will happen is people will start getting paid to offer up some Quid in order to get some Quo for their clients. We’ll call them “Lobbyists” and we’ll start calling the Quid by a different name: “Campaign Contribution”.

I saw this story yesterday and couldn’t find any background information.

What’s stands out here is that he has an “R” after his name, and the Feds targeted him around the time an even bigger crook, with a “D” after his name, entered the race to be his successor.

I’d be willing to bet that this guy is pure as the driven snow.

Fix was in. The RNC knew this was coming. This may partly explain the reason for their miserly and indifferent treatment of Virginia's Republican candidates in the recent elections. "Cut funding for Cuccinelli, Obenshane, and all the others, and we'll let McDonnell off the hook, and keep it all in the family. For now."

He may be a Pub and may have run the state well (I voted for him) but I hope they hang him high....
I don’t care who you are...if you are on the take and you are guilty, you are scum...may justice be well served.

I am wondering what FEDERAL law is broken when a STATE government official takes STATE donations and then allegedly gives the donor STATE preferential treatment.

Shouldn’t this be a state matter?

“Looks like toolbooth bob is going to prison.”

Can’t come soon enough. He was a crook who abused his office for cash and gifts.

We can’t keep defending people like him just because they have an (R) after their names. Our commitment to smaller government must also be for cleaner government no matter what the short-term political costs are.
