McDonnell Cabinet Member Also Received Gifts

When Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) traveled to South Carolina in January 2012 to endorse Mitt Romney for president and later to the GOP convention, Secretary of the Commonwealth Janet Vestal Kelly flew each place separately, the Richmond Times Dispatch reports.

"Both of the Cabinet official's trips were provided by Star Scientific Inc. CEO Jonnie R. Williams Sr., whose gifts to McDonnell, the governor's family and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli have come under public scrutiny in the past five weeks."
