Something tells me former Virginia Gov. McDonnell is not sleeping with his wife, Maureen, these days.
CNN is reporting that months ago while still in office the federal authorities tried to strike a deal with McDonnell where he would plead to charges of trading on his office to provide assistance to a businessman in exchange for luxury gifts and loans. In exchange his wife would not be charged.
Bob McDonnell turned the offer down.
Today both of the McDonnells entered not guilty pleas to charges that they engaged in conspiracy and fraud. They head to trial on July 28th. The only question I have is who turns on who first in the courtroom.
I sense that given the backstory as reported today by CNN Bob McDonnell should wear a cup to the court proceedings.
