Documents Contradict McDonnell on Wedding

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) "has said his daughter and her husband paid for their own wedding. So a $15,000 check from a major campaign donor to pay for the food at the affair was a gift to the bride and groom and not to him and therefore did not have to be publicly disclosed under the law," the Washington Post reports.

But documents show that McDonnell "signed the catering contract, making him financially responsible for the 2011 event. The governor made handwritten notes to the caterer in the margins. In addition, the governor paid nearly $8,000 in deposits for the catering."
