"BY JIM NOLAN Richmond Times-Dispatch

Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were indicted today by a federal grand jury on 14 counts stemming from the first couple’s acceptance and solicitation of thousands in gifts and loans from a wealthy businessman during McDonnell’s term.

The indictment, spelled out in an extensive document filed by the United States Attorney for the Eastern District, paints a detailed portrait of how the governor and his wife accepted more than $135,000 in direct payments as gifts and loans from then-Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams Sr., in addition to golf outings and other things of value, in exchange for the first couple's assistance in promoting his struggling Henrico-based company’s dietary supplement, Anatabloc.

It also asserts that the McDonnells lied on loan applications and forms requiring them to declare debts and then tried to cover their tracks."
