On Tuesday, former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, once considered a Republican presidential hopeful, was indicted along with his wife by federal authorities for illegally receiving gifts. A Virginia businessman seeking to do commerce with the state, Jonnie R. Williams, gave the couple cash, clothes, luxury vacations, golf clubs, and private plane rides, as well as loans. The McDonnells, according to federal authorities, then attempted to push Williams’ dietary supplement company, Star Supplement. Star Supplement did not get any state business, and those working at Star were not appointed to any state offices.
Overall, the feds charged McDonnell and his wife with 14 felony counts, including wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, obtaining property under color of official office, lying to a federal credit union, lying to a financial institution, and obstruction of justice.
