Donor Gave McDonnell $6,500 Watch

A prominent political donor purchased a $6,500 Rolex watch for Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell (R) and the governor did not disclose it in his annual financial filings, the Washington Post reports.

"Williams's gift came in August 2011 -- about two weeks after he met with a top state health official to pitch the benefits of his company's health products at a meeting arranged by first lady Maureen McDonnell... Williams bought the watch at the urging of Maureen McDonnell, who admired Williams's own Rolex and suggested that he buy her a similar one she could give to her husband."
