as one can read in the Washington Post, in a story titled McDonnell’s corporation, wife allegedly benefited from $120,000 more from donor.
Here is the beginning of the article:
RICHMOND — A prominent political donor gave $70,000 to a corporation owned by Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell and his sister last year, and the governor did not disclose the money as a gift or loan, according to people with knowledge of the payments.Worth noting that Jonnie Williams and his company, Star Scientific, also gave money to Ken Cuccinelli.
The donor, wealthy businessman Jonnie R. Williams Sr., also gave a previously unknown $50,000 check to the governor’s wife, Maureen, in 2011, the people said.
With the disclosure of the two items in this article, the total amount that Williams gave to the McDonnells in the past two years is now at $145,000.
There is a lot more in the article.
As Rachel Maddow noted tonight, McDonnell has hired noted Washington Lawyer Emmett Flood, who participated in defending Bill CLinton during impeachment and both Bush and Cheney as well, the latter when he was sued by Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson.
Bill Bolling might yet get to fulfill his dream job as governor, eh?
