    Of course this Republican ex-governor is already claiming it's all a baseless, evil Democratic plot. The evidence seems pretty damning, enough that a Federal Grand Jury (not the Democrats) indicted him & his wife on 14 counts.

    Does your total include the loans they got, and the free catering gift for their daughter's wedding? By having the bribes gifts directed to family members, he hoped to dodge the law that made giving the same gifts to the Governor unethical, if not actually illegal.

    Maybe Governor McDonnell will become cellmates with that Democratic Governor Rod Blagojevich in prison. I'm for busting the crooks on both sides whenever possible

    Of the two republican governors who were 'sposed to be the new saving graces for the republican party in 2009
    One has just been indicted and the other is under multiple State and Federal probes
