Donor Picked Up Tab for Wedding of Governor's Daughter

A political donor paid for the $15,000 wedding reception for the daughter of Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell (R) and his wife, Maureen, attended by about 200 guests at the governor's mansion, the Washington Post reports.

The gift from Jonnie R. Williams Sr., the chief executive of a company that has made major contributions to McDonnell's campaigns and that is the subject of a federal securities investigation, was not disclosed by McDonnell.

It's "just one element of the McDonnells' close relationship with Williams and his company, a relationship that has included rides on Williams's corporate jet, personal gifts to the first family and efforts by the governor and his wife to promote the company."
